Some of my favorite quotes from Chapter 8 Familiarity from Dangerous Calling by Paul Tripp

“Awe of God should lift me out of my darkest moments of discouragement and be the source of my most exuberant celebrations.”

“Children’s ministry must have as its goal to ignite in young children a life-shaping awe of God.”

“recognize the coldness in the heart of so many men to the things of God and confront and stimulate men with their identity as those created to live and lead out of a humble zeal for God’s glory rather than their own.”

“There is a war going on between the awe of God and all of the awe-inspiring things that are around you that God created.”

“The glories of being right, successful, in control, esteemed, and secure often become more influential in the way that ministry is done than the awesome realities of the presence, sovereignty, power, and love of God.”

“It’s hard to bring the gospel to people I am looking down my nose at or neither like nor respect.”

“It is the awesome glory of God’s existence, character, plan, presence, promises, and grace that gives me reason to work hard and not give up, no matter whether we are in a “good” season or one that is stormy.”
