First of all, I screwed up…this verse isn’t from Mark 5, but chapter 4. The verse is correct.
It makes me think. My first idea to write about for this post was being in awe of God. And actually my mistake makes me even more in awe of Him. I can’t even write the correct number. I constantly am in error, no matter how hard I try. But He, He does not make mistakes. The earth is His masterpiece and everything within and without it. The wind and the sea obey His call. He considers me one of his creations–one of the many many parts of his masterpiece–that He created without mistake.
Who are we NOT to be in awe of Him?
In this part of the Bible Jesus has called disciples, he is raising people from the dead, he is sharing parables of wisdom, and he calms the storms. He is in control. He is sharing the depth and breadth of his power. He is impressing the Jewish community. They were in awe of Jesus at this point. Just imagine if they had really understood the lengths Jesus was about to go to in order to save humanity and bring us all closer to understanding His absolute majesty.
With the start of a new year, a new day to refresh our faith, we have a new chance to be in awe of God.
