Fear of God Devotional: Reformation Begins With Reforming Our View of God

How does our view of God impact our view of ourselves and of sin?

John Snyder explains in this video that we must change the way that we think about God. If we have a biblical view of the majesty of God, it will put us in our place. We will correspondingly have a small view of ourselves. We also will have a right view of sin. Reformation begins with a proper understanding of who God is and how sinful our sin is. 

In contrast, if we have a small view of God, we will have a correspondingly large view of ourselves, making ourselves the center. Sin will be merely something that we want relief from, but not a cure.

Revelations 4:11 (NKJV) – “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.”
