Fear God and not man

God deserves our full reverence and respect. God deserves all honor and praise. He is holy; He is almighty; He is all-powerful. There is no one like God – NO ONE.

Man cannot save us and man cannot condemn us. Do not fear man. It is only God who saves. He is the author of life; He is the giver of life; He is the restorer of life; He is the judge of life. Blessing and prosperity are found in fearing God and not man. Life is found in fearing God and not man.
1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways. 2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table. 4 Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD. 5 May the LORD bless you from Zion all the days of your life; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem, 6 and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel. – Psalm 128
