This morning I was reminded
in the Proverbs
that Wisdom is very essential to 
living....
and not 
dying....
and giving guidance for the intellect
and knowledge...
then I read Acts 5:1-10
Ananias and Sapphira....
Ooops....
Don't lie to the Holy Spirit....
Strike ONE..... You're out.....
What? Only one chance?
that's no fair...
don't the 'rules' say 3 strikes?
....Conversation with a father of a daughter
who tried crack once.....
Done.
Was a law student...
now can't work at MacDonalds.....
Wisdom.
God
Holy Spirit
The end of that event in Acts
was
Fear.
It
Didn't keep people from coming to Christ
Didn't make God out as a 'terrible person'
It just reminded them
- Sin is VERY significant.
- People are not little Gods
and 
- God is AWESOME
and Not the way our society uses the term
but
fearful / 
jaw dropping / 
stop in your tracks / 
oh no I am undone 
- AWE
It reminds me of a line from Narnia.....
Aslan the lion is not Safe...
but He is 
Good...
Jesus, my Lord
and
Master / Creator of the
universe
I come under Your
Authority and
Kingship
and Principles of 
You being
Master.
Thank You for teaching me
again today
that You are
Holy
Awesome
Big
and
Good....
Thank You for 
choosing to 
love
me.....
Awesomely.
