The Power of Attention



Ben Stuart continues in our series, Church People, by showing us the necessity of awe in the human experience and how the church in Acts made space for awe by eliminating distractions and devoting their attention to the Lord.

Key Takeaway

Distraction from your attention impedes your ability to experience awe.

How do we get awe to be fully who Christ wants us to be?

  1. We can't create awe, but we can put ourselves in spaces that allow us to experience it.
  2. We choose what we give attention to.
  3. We seek information and interpretation. We try to understand what it is that we see.
  4. We can show evidence of the fruit of the Spirit so that other believers see the fruit of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.


"We are made to live in awe and to worship a God whose glory and grace and power and love overwhelms and changes us."
