Stunned by God’s Glory

If we are spiritually shallow or bored, we will be unreliable and unadventurous in our lives of devotion to Christ. Small doses of revelation lead to tiny lives for God. Anyone who ever lived a big life for Jesus journeyed with a great big view of who He is. The Christian walk is not survival of the fittest or simply a case of guts and grit. The life of the Christian worshipper will of course involve determination and constant decisions to endure to the end, but ultimately, you should not have to create some kind of credible testimony to His name. Worship doesn’t start with you. It begins and ends with a merciful, majestic, and powerful God. The revelation of our God keeps us in the fight even when times get tough, and the wonder of Him fuels our every step. We are wide-eyed worshippers, stunned by glory and strengthened by grace.
