awwww. or AWE!

In devotion time this morning the movie George of the Jungle came to mind The narrator says something about how the actors were in “AWE!”, and the actors went, “awwww.”  The narrator corrected them as to the proper definition of the word AWE!,  and they corrected their usage.  Funny!

But it made me think…are we “awwww.” Christians, or are we “AWE!” Christians.

As I was reading John the Baptist’s witness to Jesus’ baptism I was struck with “AWE!” when I read that John saw (John’s AWE!) the Holy Spirit descend on Jesus like a dove.  These are amazing words.  “AWE!”-filled words.

“awwww.” slowly exhales OUT the breath with an audible physical sound.  “awwww.” depletes the body of air and thus life, and it ends with a period.

“AWE!” is a sudden IN-take of breath without any sound!   “AWE!” also fills the body with breath and life and vitality and joy, and it ends with an exclamation point!

This song is about another John and what he saw. John’s AWE!

Jesus,  Thank you that what both John’s saw is now our “AWE!”  May we be “AWE!”-filled Children.   Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
