Is it the Estancias that dot Patagonia?
The penguins and elephant seals along the shore?
Or the glaciers at the foot of the Andes near the Chilean border?
All the above! What do they have in common? They were all created by an Awesome God.
Dictionary.com defines awesome as:
"An overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration and fear, etc, produced by that which is grand, sublime, extremely powerful and the like: in awe of God... Archaic: power to inspire fear or reverence."
We use this word lightly, don't we?
"Wow, Jason, that's an 'awesome' bike!" (is he fearful of the bike?)
Or "Kim, where did you get that 'awesome' dress?" (does Kim's friend reverence the dress?)
Psalm 66:1-4 ESV 1 Shout for joy to God, all the earth; 2 sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! 3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. 4 All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.” Selah
Let's begin to use the word appropriately again, and attribute it to one who deserves our 'reverence and fear'...who is that for you? What amazing adjectives would you use in the above sentences in place of AWESOME?
