Podcast #171: “In Awe” by Hollyn

Discovering Acceptable Worship in Hebrews 12

It is difficult to worship God in an appropriate and authentic way when you think you are just like Him. Hollyn’s new song, “In Awe,” leads us all over God’s Word to discover truth. It is here we begin to see God clearer, and thus put ourselves “in our place” so-to-speak.

The Psalms teach us, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” I want wisdom, don’t you?

On this episode I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
  • God’s way of respect for God and others – Hebrews 12:14
  • God is self-sufficient – Acts 17:24-25
  • We don’t worship God in awe because we believe the age-old lie that we can be just like Him
  • The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom – Psalm 111:10
  • The contrast between Mount Sinai and Mount Zion – Hebrews 12:18-24
  • Exploring Mount Sinai – Exodus 19 and 20
  • Exploring Mount Zion – Psalm 2 and Psalm 110
  • Once we grasp the difference between the old and new covenants, what is our response? – Hebrews 12:25
  • A picture of those who “refused him who is speaking” – Jeremiah 5:20-25
  • God’s AWEsomeness should lead us to repentance

This Week’s Challenge

Read Hebrews 12:18-29. Then discover Mount Sinai in Exodus 19 and 20. Take a peek at Mount Zion in Psalm 2 and 110. Go back to Hebrews 12:25 and let it launch you to Jeremiah 5 where we see what it looks like to “refuse him who is speaking.” And then back to Exodus 20 where we see the first step on that path to wisdom…that path that we set our foot on by fearing God…the path that leads next to repentance. It’s all right there in Scripture and simply and beautifully portrayed in our song this week.
