“If you’re Chinese and you become a Christian, you don’t become an African Christian. You don’t become a European Christian. You’re a Chinese Christian. But your Christianity goes underneath your Chineseness. Likewise, it goes underneath your Italianness. It goes underneath your being a nurse or a lawyer. It goes underneath being an abused child. It goes underneath anything. It goes to the uttermost foundations.”–Tim Keller, God’s Word, Our Story
We can know many things and be quite intelligent, but if our knowledge is not founded upon and encased in the fear of God, then we just don’t get it”– Paige Brown, God’s Word, Our Story
“The fear of God, which is a huge concept in the Scriptures, is the awe, the reverence, the honor, and the worship demanded by the majesty of his person, his power, and his position. This fear is the only proper response to the God of the Bible. He is, of course, to be before all things in our hearts, because he is before all things in reality. Therefore, this fear is supremely rational.”– Paige Brown, God’s Word, Our Story
“The gracious restoration of a right relationship through God’s covenant with his people is the story of the rest of the Bible.”– Paige Brown, God’s Word, Our Story
“A servile fear is appropriate for those not belonging to God; a ﬁlial fear replaces that servile fear and then characterizes those who are the people of God.”– Paige Brown, God’s Word, Our Story
“The fear of God always motivates our living and our doing. The fear of God is not a contemplation. It is a motivation.”– Paige Brown, God’s Word, Our Story
