Fear of the Lord

     Who will overcome? Those who know that they are part of the body of Christ, and those who hold their body and soul to be sacred, not as if it were their own but belonging to Christ, they will be victors. Those who look at Christ crucified on the cross and then say to themselves: there is the One who loves me more than my mother; His sufferings are for my sins, and His blood for my purification and salvation: they will overcome. All those will be victors who through time have adorned their soul with trembling love for Christ, the eternal Bridegroom. Yes, all those who respond to the call to the heavenly supper with the Lamb of God. "Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb" (Rev. 19:9). Called and responded. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; love is the fullness and the culmination of wisdom.
