Crater Lake in Oregon is uniquely beautiful. Created by a volcanic eruption, the lake is crystal clear, and set in a goblet of mountains. The first Europeans to see it were two prospectors searching for food. After seeing the stunning lake they continued looking for food and came across some Native Americans. Though they lived nearby, they denied the existence of such a lake. They knew it was there but they thought it sacred, and they believed that anyone who gazed into its depths would be struck blind. Our own sense of reverence for God's name, His House, and His day does not stem from fear of some sudden death. It stems rather from a deep respect for who God is and what He has done.
