III. ZION

All of God's blessings come from Jesus.

 

Quotes

“Ungodly fear flows from God wrongly perceived, whereas godly fear flows from God rightly perceived. Ungodly fear compels us to run from God, whereas godly fear compels us to run to God.” –  Stephen Yuille

Discussion Questions

  1. What makes for a happy life? How does our culture answer that question? How does Christianity? How are they different?

  2. What is the wrong fear and the right fear of God? What's the difference between reverence and dread?

  3. Talk about your relationships (especially family). Are you more prone to make yourself the center or to make your spouse/children the center? How does that lead to ruin?

  4. What is one practical way living with the proper fear of the Lord would change the dynamics in your relationships?
