    “It is a daily battle, one that is free of physical weapons, political parties, and national boundaries. It is a battle that has been raging since the garden and will not stop until the war is finally won. This battle is not fought between people, it is fought within people. It is a much greater danger to each of us than war between nations will ever be. It is a battle of awe. We were created to live in a real, heart-gripping, agenda-setting, behavior-forming awe of God. But other awes kidnap our hearts. Awe of creation, awe of other people, and awe of ourselves shove the awe of God out of our hearts. So we need grace to see again, to tremble again, and to bow down again at the feet of the One who deserves our awe.” - Paul David Tripp in “New Morning Mercies”

    Sometimes differing aspects of the same idea are presented in scripture, thus we have our love of God, our fear of God, and our awe of God.

    Psalm 66:3 Say to God, “How awesome are Your works!
    Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give feigned obedience to You.

    Job 4:6 “Is not your fear of God your confidence,
    And the integrity of your ways your hope?

    2Thessalonians 3:5
    May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.
