10/20 - "For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords,
the great, the mighty, and the awesome God." (Deut. 10:17a - ESV) We
Christians acknowledge that our God is the only true God. But how
often do we stop to think what that really means? Read these words of
Moses again and try to capture what they are really saying!
- "Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord,
bless His name; tell of His salvation from day to day." (Psalm 96:1-2
- ESV) When the words of Moses from yesterday's Reading really soak
in, what other reaction could we have than to sing to the Lord - our
great and awesome God - a new song, from the bottom of our hearts.
- "I am the Lord, and there is no other, beside Me there is no God." (Isaiah 45:5a - ESV) Does it seem that the Lord reminds us over and
over about Him being the only true God? Could it be because He knows
His human creatures really well? There are so many people - throughout
the ages - that seem to forget and make their own gods! But then, how
often do we consciously remember that God is Lord over all?
- "God is faithful, by Whom you were called into the fellowship of His
Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." (I Cor. 1:9 - ESV) No matter how many
His children give Him less than first obedience, God is still faithful -
not only providing us a way of salvation, but also giving us His Holy
Spirit to keep us in fellowship with our Savior. Oh, sing unto the Lord
a new song!
10/24 - "And (Jesus) said, 'You
shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul
and with all your mind.'" (Matt. 22:37 - ESV) This is the answer
Jesus gave to a question about which was the greatest commandment. It
sums up very nicely what our attitude should be every day toward our
great and awesome God! May this be our goal!
