When was the last time you actually stood in AWE of Jesus?
The dictionary defines AWE as the following:
an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, fear, etc., produced by that which is grand, sublime, extremely powerful
Have you felt that toward Jesus?
The old hymn says, “I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene”. A newer chorus says, “I stand, I stand in awe of You”.
But are we really doing that? Do we truly grasp who HE is and what HE has done for us? If we did, I am positive that we would stand in AWE of Him each and every day. Listening for Him to speak and then doing what HE has told us to do.
I am excited to introduce a song to my church entitled “At The Cross (Love Ran Red)”. This song was written by Chris Tomlin in 2014 and used several times at Passion Conferences. Here are the words to the first verse and chorus:
There’s a place where mercy reigns and never dies. There’s a place where streams of grace flow deep and wide; where all the love I’ve ever found comes like a flood, comes flowing down.
At the cross, at the cross, I surrender my life. I’m in awe of You; I’m in awe of You. Where Your love ran red, and my sin washed white; I owe all to You, I owe all to You, Jesus.
Are you standing in AWE of Jesus today?
My prayer is that I would have this type of “AWE” toward Jesus Christ! An awe that compels me to give Him everything I have.
