The Wow Factor - South Jordan
THINK ABOUT IT: What WOWS you, WOOS you.
REALITY: God created us to crave AWE.
Romans 1:24-25 “Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen”
TENSION: If we don’t worship the CREATOR, we’ll worship the CREATED.
Religion says, “God is USEFUL.”
The Gospel says, “God is BEAUTIFUL.”
Romans 1:20 “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”
Going Forward: God asks us to praise him not because HE needs it but because WE need it.
Psalm 63:2-4 I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. 3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. 4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
Bottom Line: Good news is meant to be CELEBRATED.
