Mark 12: 29 the most important commandment You Must love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.

  1. Heart means compassion
  2. Mind, means curiosity
  3. Soul means wonder

A. We can lose the awe of the world around us

Psalm 29: 7 The voice of the Lord strikes with bolts of lightening. All those in the temple shouted and clapped at the result.

B. Familiarity blinds our ability to see

Luke 11: 34 Your eyes are the lamp of the body, if your eyes are good, your whole body is full of light. If your eyes are bad your whole body is full of darkness.

C. Wonder comes from knowing that God is beyond our senses.

Key Point: God is the only one big enough to fill the growing void that is our lives

Ephesians 1: 23 Christ fills everything in every way

Isaiah 43: 19 I am doing a new thing. It springs up but you don’t perceive it.

Laminin is a protien in our bodies that brings cells attachment and differentiation, cell shape and movement maintenance of tissue phenotype and promotion of tissue survival. The molecular structure of laminin

some argue that laminin is in the shape of a sword rather than a cross

The important thing is that we need to fill minds with wonder of God again

D. Sin has blinded the eyes of man so they cannot see

John 9 tells of a man born blind. When our eyes are opened, we will either see or we will remain blind.

The question is how will we respond to that blindness. Will we ask God to fill our minds with wonder and renew a relationship with Him or will we continue to walk in blindness
