How important is it 'To Fear God'? One of the chapter titles is 'The Soul Of Godliness'.Jerry Bridges believes (as do John Murray and I)that 'The Heart And Soul Of Godliness' is the fear of God.-Mr.Bridges quotes John Murray "The fear of God is the soul of godliness.That is,the fear of God is the animating and invigorating principle of a godly life." Is holiness important in the life of a believer?God commands his people to be holy because he is holy.If 'Fearing God' is the essence of holiness,that helps us to see something of its importance.

How influential should godly fear be in our daily lives?If we want to glorify God and desire to live for Him we must have knowledge of who God is and what He desires form us-Proverbs 1:7a 'The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge...'.-"It is the fear of the Lord that should determine our fundamental outlook on life."

The author contends that one of the principal parts of fearing God is obedience to His commands.One of the evidences that someone fears God is wholehearted submission to His Word-"...and it is a conscious obedience to God's commands as given in His Word that constitutes godly fear."

In the second section of this book Mr.Bridges considers aspects of who God is (some of His attributes-holiness,wisdom,love).One cannot fear an unknown god.The knowledge of God in His being and nature is the foundation of every doctrine.The greater one's knowledge of 'The Triune God',the more you will be enabled,by His grace,to walk in godly fear.We often try to categorize things to help us better understand them.Are any of God's attributes more important than the others? Bridges puts to rest that type of thinking with this assertion- "...we should not exact any of God's attributes above the others .All of them in their infiniteness,are essential to his being." To any who might not agree with this contention,what part of God's being or character could be removed,without un-deifying him?

Jerry Bridges 'The Joy Of Fearing God' along with A.N.Martin's 'The Forgotten Fear' are two of the most helpful books,on this important Biblical teaching that have been published in our generation.

As facilitator of a womens Bible Study group I'm experiencing changes in my own life due to this book! Jerry Bridges has a very clear way of sharing what the Lord has revealed to him - which in turn affects the reader in a very power way. The Joy of Fearing God has opened up new ground for many of the women involved in this study. Old beliefs developed through legalistic teachings of our past are being torn down and replaced with the truth about what it means to fear God and experience joy in doing so! We truly are on a journey together, learning about the reverential awe, admiration and amazement due to Almighty God whom we call Abba Father!

The Joy of Fearing God by Jerry Bridges takes readers on a journey they will never forget. Bridges paints a clear and compelling portrait; one that promotes reverence and clearly outlines the necessary ingredients in a relationship that rightly honors the God of the universe. The Joy of Fearing God is a typical Bridges book. It exalts Christ and humbles the creature.

This book takes the fear of God and puts it in the correct frame and perspective. It explains why Christians must fear God and why non-Christians should fear God and the 2 fears are not the same. Once again, Jerry Bridges knocks it out of the park. We are teaching it to our youth group and using it as a basis for a Youth Camp.

Awesome. Wish I had this book when I became a Christian.

The fear of God is very important to a believer. I do not think very many people understand that it is a good thing. Jerry Bridges does an excellent job. If you are not closer to God after reading this book you should ask God to help you examine yourself and get into scripture more. Jerry Bridges writes books that are easy to read and packs so much scripture to back up what he writes about. I have read all his books and highly recommend them. Some I have even re-read.
Everyone should read this book. It's very practical and gets the message across in a very practical way. I really enjoyed it.
