The Gift of Awe and Wonder
“Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.” Psalm 119:129
The gift of the Word of God is full of wonderful revelations, wonderful commands, and wonderful promises! As Charles Spurgeon says of this thought: “…the more he [David] wondered the more he obeyed.” This obedience displays itself through joy, passion for souls, a giving attitude, unity, thankfulness, and encouragement. Could this be the problem with the Church today? Are we in awe and wonder as we open the Word of God, searching for those gems, waiting to uncover a truth that we need today? Psalm 34:8 tells us to “…taste and see that the Lord is good!” The best Christmas gift that we can offer is time with God, furthering our relationship with Him! This gift then spills over into our relationships with family, friends, and co-workers! These presents are priceless!
