My God vs Yours

November 2, 2008

I can’t stand to hear someone take the Lord’s name in vain but unfortunately, I seem to hear it all the time.

The other night while surrounded by a group of people, I overheard one of them exclaim, “Oh my god!” I cringed. I know that my God has made it very clear not to use His name in vain (Exodus 20:7). So either this person doesn’t know that or perhaps their god and my God aren’t the same. I started thinking about that and came up with these observations:

My God wants me to forgive others when they sin against me (or others) regardless of whether they have asked me to forgive them or not (Matthew 6:14-15). Does yours?

My God wants me to consider others first (Phillipians 2:3). Does yours?

My God wants me to teach His Word to all nations giving them all a chance to repent and come to Him (Matthew 28:18-20). Does yours?

My God wants marriage to be between one man and one woman for life (Genesis 2:24-25)Matthew. Does yours?

My God wants me to seek first His Kingdom and He will see to my needs (Matthew 6:33). Will yours?

My God wants me to judge with righteous judgment (John 7:24). Does yours?

My God wants me to be an active part of His church (Acts 2:40-47). Does yours?

My God wants me to live at peace to the best of my ability with everyone (Romans 12:18). Does yours?

My God wants me to be on guard for the coming of His Son (Matthew 24:42). Does yours?

My God says that those who believe and are baptized will be saved (Mark 16:16). Does yours?

My God is even kind to the unthankful and evil (Matthew 5:45). Is yours?

My God wants me to meditate on things that are pure, lovely, true, noble, and just (Phillipians 4:8). Does yours?

My God made the universe, everything in it, around it and on it, and still stops what He’s doing to listen to me pray (James 5:16)!

Take a moment and consider who your god is then think about what Joshua said in Joshua 24:15:

“But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”

Who are you serving?

Psalm 118:28
You are my God, and I will praise You. You are my God and I will exalt You.
