I’m a bit of a fan of Master Chef. It inspires me to cook, and we all need a bit of that in our lives!
Last week, one of the most renowned and intimidating chefs in the world entered the kitchen: Marco Pierre White.
To say that the contestants were in awe was an understatement. Some fell to pieces, others were lost for words, and all wanted to cook the best they’d ever cooked.
I’m sure Marco deserves their accolades, but he doesn’t deserve their worship, and as I watched them, I wondered if any of them had ever given even half that awe filled response to their creator.
And then I wondered about myself; I who actually believe in God. Are there people on earth who make me tremble with more awe than He does?
Anything that becomes exalted to the level of God in our lives must be cut down. But even more than that, God must be lifted higher.
There was a Christian song I used to listen to as a teenager that had a line that said ‘Let me not forget to tremble.’ It was a great reminder to live in awe of a God whom we so quickly push into the shadows behind our worldly idols.
There are great and accomplished men and women in this world, but they must never hold a candle to our God.
