Alarm and fellowship. Those words regularly don’t go together. In what manner can the “fellowship of the Lord” be for the individuals who “dread him?” Doesn’t fear cause us to flee? Isn’t companionship for the individuals who hang close?
Surely, for some apprehension and companionship don’t go together. Sin has made a crevice between us and the heavenly God. That crevice of sin abandons us divided from God. God’s last judgment on sin and delinquents is until the end of time. Man’s wrongdoing issue produces alarm, or positively ought to!
