Filled with Awe

Awe. The Bible is full of awe-inspiring experiences, challenges, and victories. Disciples of Jesus can learn a great deal about awe from Hebrews 12 and 13.

  • Awe compels me to leave my sins behind so that I can run with Jesus (Heb 12:1-2)
  • Awe strengthens my heart in the face of hardship (Heb 12:3)
  • Awe inspires me to strive for holiness (Heb 12:14-16)
  • Awe motivates me to listen to God’s warnings (Heb 12:25)
  • Awe provokes acceptable worship (Heb 12:28-29)
  • Awe fuels my devotion to my Savior, day by day (Heb 13:1-16)

Jesus himself warned that in the absence of awe, hearts grow dull, ears don’t hear, and eyes are closed (Matt 13:13-15). Which leads to two very important, very personal questions:

  • “What dulls my sense of awe?”
  • “What feeds my sense of awe?”
