LIFE RESOURCE CENTER

AWE: Why it Matters for Everything We Think, Say, and Do by Paul Tripp

The truth is, we were all created for awe. We were all made to be struck by the infinite goodness and glory of God but as a result of the fall of humanity into sin, we run after awe from lesser sources and they always come up short.  We give our heart to the worship of the thing that has been made rather than the One who made it—spending when we don’t really have a need, envying what someone else has, or eating when we’re not really hungry. We all need to spend more time gazing upon the awesome beauty of our Lord so that our hearts will remember and be rescued. In his latest book, Awe, author Paul Tripp redirects our gaze to God’s awe-inducing glory, and shows how such a vision has the potential to impact our every thought, word, and deed.
