Bringing On the Fear

Have you ever encountered a person who made you think “This one knows God and has been exposed to things that are totally foreign to me”?

In reality you are finding yourself on the periphery of holy fear.

Perhaps there are no grand scripture words being proclaimed by that one. Just an apparent clarity, confidence and comfort that results from Godly rest. He is not flustered. He is not given to the foolish pass-times of the age. He is meek and sports a gentle sense of humour. He brings on the curiosity, and becomes a pleasure to be near.

This is the spirit of Christ being manifested in everyday living. If you ask that individual a question from the heart, the response will be respectful, sincere and packing the wisdom of a fellow traveler who has come through his share of pain under the caring eye of the Good Shepherd.

Perhaps he does not even know that he is having such impact. He is not consciously a play actor. He gives flesh and blood to that sort of spiritual understanding and wealth described in Jeremiah 9:

23 Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:

24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.
