Who Is Your God?
Most people have someone they look up to, such as a mentor, pastor, celebrity, or a person in power. These are not bad; however, they can turn into a god in our life when we start to put them over God. As Christians, we should not have anything or anyone above God in our life. When we begin to put more focus and emphasis on something or someone, it can turn into a god in our life. In reality, if we break everything down, there are two gods that can appear in our lives: the world and God. The world consists of fame, wealth, and power as it states in 1 John 2:16, "For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." These three things are not bad in and of itself, but it is when put above God. God is a God of love, full of compassion, mercy, and forgiveness towards us (1 John 4:6-11). The Bible tells us that we cannot serve two masters (Matthew 6:24). We cannot please our flesh while serving God. We must decide who will be our God (Joshua 24:15). If we allow the things of this world to be our God, our life will be destroyed because we need God in our life. We need His guidance, love, mercy, and forgiveness. We need a relationship with Him because He is the only One that can help us. If we choose to serve God, we cannot help but praise Him and give Him glory with our lives, but if we choose to serve the world, we will be filled with emptiness. Who will you serve today? You cannot dabble in sin while walking with God. You must choose which who you will serve.
For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.
Micah 4:5 (KJV)
