Forgiveness and fear

But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

(Psalms 130:4)

…And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot..

(I Peter 1:17-19)

God’s forgiveness brings the true fear of God.

When someone has been washed pure in the blood of the Lamb they have a somber realization of their responsibility now, and the consequences of treading the Son of God under their feet by returning to their old sins.
