Speaker: Pastor Benjamin Robinson
In this sermon, Pastor Benjamin Robinson explores the nuanced difference between the fear of the Lord and the spirit of fear, urging believers to seek a reverential fear that draws them closer to God. He reflects on biblical accounts, like the parable of the talents and David’s experience with the Ark of the Covenant, to illustrate how a godly fear leads to obedience, blessings, and a deeper relationship with the divine. Pastor Robinson calls for a divine jealousy that motivates us to pursue God’s presence with intensity and to let go of the fear that drives us away from Him.
