Booklet 4 of 12 from a series of talks given by Priest Daniel Sysoev entitled “How to Inherit Eternal Life.”
The concept of the fear of God has unfortunately become unpopular in our time. Yet as Scripture says, The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom (Ps. 110:10). These words are so important that the Word of God repeats them on numerous occasions. The path of Christian life begins with turning away from evil, and it continues with doing good. This book explains what comprises this good, how good works correlate to faith in the Lord, and how to walk the path of salvation while guarding oneself with the fear of God and the remembrance of death.
