Fear and love of God

From John Bevere:

The Fear of the Lord keeps us from lawnessness (sin) and love of the Lord keeps us from legalism (the law). You need both. 2 Cor 7:1 “therefore having these promises let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God” (not in the love of God). In Jesus day it was skewed towards legalism but in the last days it will be lawnessness. It will be very hard to be a Christian in the last days – men will be lovers of pleasure, themselves etc and won’t fear God.
