Awe: Why It Matters for Everything We Think, Say, and Do

A Universal Quest

In his classic book, Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis writes,

If I find in myself desires which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.

Human beings are hardwired for awe. We are worshipers. We are searching for joy, hope, and fulfillment.

This longing is deep in the heart of every human being. It wanders around in your soul. Your heart cries out every day to be enveloped by the glory of God.

And whether we know it or not, that desire to be amazed, moved, and satisfied is actually a universal craving to see God face-to-face.

For we are on a quest for life. And there are only two places to look: we can search for life in what He created or we can look to our Creator, for whom and by whom all things exist.
