God is a just and jealous God who wants us to love and serve only Him,and not other gods or graven images. It is up to us to make the choice that brings honor to His name (Exodus 20:1-6). 1 And God spake all these words, saying, 2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Jesus said He speaks to the world the things His Father has taught Him. Just as He did the Fathers will in the earth,we also must choose our will or His for our life! (John 8:25-29).
Sure we can live our life for ourselves,but why would anyone want to miss out on the blessings,protection and guidance only the Lord can provide? Not to mention a peace which passes all understanding when we’re in the midst of the storms we face in this life!
Our choices are a matter of life or death. Do we choose life in Christ or eternal damnation?(Colossians 3:1-10).
