that we would be delivered from the [destructive] hand of our enemies and [then] serve Him without fear
For you did not receive the Holy Spirit, to enslave you again to fear, [Note: Some translators take "Holy Spirit" here to be "spirit," making the verse say "you did not receive the spirit of slavery"], but you received the Holy Spirit [who produces] sonship, so we can call out, "Abba", [which means] "Father."
2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit [i.e., a disposition] that makes us cowards but one that gives us power and love and self-control.
Therefore, we should be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken [i.e., the church. See Col. 1:13; Rev. 1:6, 9]. So, with reverence and awe, we should serve God in a way that pleases Him,
You believe that there is [only] one God; that is good! Even the demons believe [that], and they shudder [with fear at the thought].
1 John 4:12
No person has gazed upon God [at any time]; [but] if we love one another, God [continually] lives in our hearts, and His love is made complete within us.
