The Fear of God

“The fear of God is the hidden principle of obedience – not of nature’s growth. It is the work of the Spirit in the heart of the regenerate….It is not a legal principle of terror or bondage, but the genuine spirit of confidence – the delicate expression of filial love in the heart of a child of God – the holy fruit of forgiveness.”
-Charles Bridges, from is commentary on Ecclesiastes, p.309
