“Why Celebrate Fear?”
Psalm 34: 4, 9, 11: “The Lord delivered me from all my fears … O fear the Lord, you His saints; for to those who fear Him, there is no want … I will teach you the fear of the Lord.” How weird are we? Today many will observe a holiday to celebrate fear. Not in the Church! This psalm is placed here especially for tonight to confront this bizarre custom, and prepare us for the real holiday tomorrow: All Saints’ Day!
