The One and Only

October 3rd, 2011


Exodus 20:1-11

Some people have a subjective interest in God, pursuing faith for what it might add to their lives rather than seeking to know God and what he requires of them.

An interest in religion can be nothing more than a fascination with ourselves as religious beings—quite distinct from our standing before the true God. Private, internal religion can flourish while belief in God as externally and objectively true fades.

Superstitions abound in our world, the result of taking our eyes off of God and his inviolable Word, reverting to a spiritualism that makes us feel good or that is in keeping with our personal goals and desires.

God demands wholehearted, exclusive worship. He will not share the children of his heart, those who were made by him and for him. He is our life and without him we die. So fierce is his love.

    That was so good. Scripture says to examine ourselves. see if our faith is real. I had to examine myself after reading this. I keep asking myself why I don’t share my faith in a more outspoken way if I am truly in it for God. I ask myself why its so much easier to read books about God rather than His written word. Thank you for the reality check.
