Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God to restrain them. 2 In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are. Psalm 36:1-2 NLT
LOVING GOD + RESPECTING GOD = FEARING GOD.

The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death. Proverbs 14:27

THE FEAR OF GOD
“Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.” Genesis 22:12
THE GREATEST EVIDENCE OF THE FEAR OF GOD IS COMPLETE OBEDIENCE TO GOD.
