Awesome

<<tremendous>>

God spoke and the world with it's diverse qualities came into existence (Gen 1:3,6,9...; Ps 33:6-9). Although He is holy and powerful He wants to fellowship with us and desires we spend eternity in His presence. “For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome…The great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant of love with those who love Him and obey His commands…” (Deut 10:17; Neh 1:5; Dan 9:4). “God can do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work in us…” (Eph 3:20). “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God” (1 Jn 3:1). God is awesome – get an understanding of His mercy and mighty power that saves us (Eph 1:18-23; Tit 3:5; 1 Pet 1:3). This is reason to “Be thankful and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe” (Heb 12:28).
