Cool as they might have been, the Christmas presents you got were not ‘awesome’. That hamburger you ate? Definitely not awesome.
We’ve reduced the word ‘awesome’ to something so average that when we speak about an awesome God we’re really not in awe. Try this: read through Revelation chapters 4-7 and see what it’s like in heaven near the throne of God. Really, you could light yourself on fire while riding a water-skiing rhino being towed by a helicopter and still not be one billionth as awesome as God.
What would it take to learn to live in awe and wonder and worship God with the reverence God is worthy of today?
