What comes to your mind when you hear the phrase ‚Äúthe fear of the Lord‚ÄĚ? What kind of person do you envision when you think of a ‚ÄúGod-fearing person?‚ÄĚ What does ‚Äúthe fear of God‚ÄĚ mean? One seminary professor noted that the fear of God involves both ‚Äúbitter dread and sweet reverence.‚ÄĚ Another respected theologian noted that the fear of God is ‚Äúthe soul of godliness.‚ÄĚ The fear of the Lord as found in Scripture includes concepts such as terror and trembling and devotion, trust and worship. Cultivating a healthy fear of God brings great benefit to one‚Äôs life. ‚ÄúOh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee!‚ÄĚ (Psalm 31:19)
One way to grow in the fear of the Lord is to ‚Äúdelight greatly in his commandments.‚ÄĚ (Psalm 112:1) Our broadcasters faithfully provide Biblical messages that are reaching people in every region of the world. They share with us feedback about the site that we find encouraging and trust you will also! We thank God for how He uses our partnership to call others to ‚Äúfear God and keep His commandments.‚ÄĚ (Ecclesiastes 12:13)

Encouraging broadcaster feedback..
Below is some of the feedback from broadcasters we've received just this past week. We encourage you to contact them and tell them that you saw them here!
Rev. David Park, Hebron Free Presbyterian Church www.sermonaudio.com/hebronballymoney"We value the service that SermonAudio gives us. We broadcast every Lord‚Äôs Day as well as our special services. We have people who listen from all around the world and in the US. One elderly couple in CT listens to every week because they are now home-bound. My wife and I had the privilege of visiting them last year in their home. We know of people who listen in, and by God‚Äôs grace, are converted. One Roman Catholic man began to listen to us on SermonAudio, came to Christ, and just married a young lady from our church recently. Another lady in our community felt like she could never attend church because of some suffering in her life. She began listening to our sermons. She called me and set up a visit with me and another elder. She was converted through hearing the Word of God and passed on to heaven last year. We thank God for the possibilities of preaching the gospel to many in this way."
Jason A. Van Bemmel, Forest Hill Presbyterian Church www.sermonaudio.com/foresthillpca"I have been familiar with SermonAudio for years personally. You offer a lot of good, solid preaching. We have been with you since the very first month of our church planting effort. Your site allows us to get our message out in a format that allows people to easily find, download and/or listen to sermons online. It is nice to see traffic outside of our local community as well. It‚Äôs another means of getting the Word out to our own people and to a broader audience we could not otherwise reach. I like the option of posting my sermon manuscript for people to read and also appreciate the short video clip option for free. I have found your site reliable and dependable."
Bill Rushing, Freedom Free Will Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/freedom"SermonAudio is an amazing blessing to our church! I can‚Äôt say enough good things about your site. Our church has about 75 people on a Sunday morning but we have about 60 downloads a week from our sermons on the site. We are nearly doubling the size of our outreach through our partnership with you! It‚Äôs unbelievable what a great reach this site has. We love it! In fact, I just went through all reports we have received through the last year and I am going to share with our congregation tonight all the countries representing people who have downloaded our sermons. I am so excited and I know our church will be as well. I appreciate all you are doing!"
Craig Celso, Free Grace Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/fool"A friend of mine mentioned to me that he enjoyed listening to a pastor on this website called SermonAudio. I had never heard of the site so I went on to look at it. I saw that you were running a special for new broadcasters for $1 and I thought about all the years of sermons I had on cassette tapes stored in shoe boxes. I thought, ‚ÄėWell at least I could transfer these to digital CD and put them on SermonAudio and maybe someone would be blessed or challenged by them. About the time I signed up, you took the limit off the number of sermons one could upload in a month. What a sweet providence of God! So several months later I have uploaded over 700 sermons and last month reached people in nearly 40 states and 32 additional countries! That‚Äôs a great blessing to a pastor who hardly ever leaves his own county in western, rural NY. Thank you for what you are doing!"
Geoff Banister, Free Presbyterian Church of Indianapolis www.sermonaudio.com/indy"Broadcasting on SermonAudio has been very good for us. It is our most effective tool for people finding us and visiting us and often times joining our church. Our church people are very encouraged that SermonAudio gives us a worldwide voice to preach the Word. Thank you for your ministry over these years."
We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
