Behold, I stand at the door, and knock if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Jesus Christ. John 1:17
afraid of God, ark of God
And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God [home] to me?

And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me?

1 Chronicles 13:1 – 13:14

  1 And David consulted with the captains of thousands and hundreds, [and] with every leader.
  2 And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, If [it seem] good unto you, and [that it be] of the Lord our God, let us send abroad unto our brethren every where, [that are] left in all the land of Israel, and with them [also] to the priests and Levites [which are] in their cities [and] suburbs, that they may gather themselves unto us:
  3 And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we enquired not at it in the days of Saul.
  4 And all the congregation said that they would do so: for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people.
  5 So David gathered all Israel together, from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering of Hemath, to bring the ark of God from Kirjath–jearim.
  6 And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, [that is], to Kirjath–jearim, which [belonged] to Judah, to bring up thence the ark of God the Lord, that dwelleth [between] the cherubims, whose name is called [on it].
  7 And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart.
  8 And David and all Israel played before God with all [their] might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.
  9 And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.
  10 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.
  11 And David was displeased, because the Lord had made a breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perez–uzza to this day.
  12 And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God [home] to me?
  13 So David brought not the ark [home] to himself to the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obed–edom the Gittite.
  14 And the ark of God remained with the family of Obed–edom in his house three months. And the Lord blessed the house of Obed–edom, and all that he had.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
We Believe…

In one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;

In the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death for all through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead;

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;

In the divine inspiration of all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, guaranteeing their infallibility, entire trustworthiness, and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

That all people are sinners and cannot save themselves. Salvation is received as a free gift of God’s grace, apart from works, through repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of Christ and the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit;

In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost;

In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are thus members of His Body, the Church, whose work is the worship of God, perfecting the saints, and evangelization of the world.
