Why Proclaim His Name?

As a devout believer in Jesus Christ and all that entails, I’ve often been ridiculed because of my relationship with Him (who many have mistaken as me being “religious).  I am not religious; I am in a committed relationship with my Father, and  I am a joint-heir  with Jesus Christ.  There is a distinct difference.  But I digress.

Question asked of me:  What happens when you get to the end of your life and you find out there is no God?

My Response:  I’d rather live my life according to God’s Word and get to the end and find out He doesn’t exist, than to live my life as if He doesn’t exist, and then get to the end and find out, He does!  My time would not be wasted!

How many people would argue this position?  The same number of people who would attempt to refute His existence–nothing changes.

But here is the bright side–He is the same (His intent and purposes remain), yesterday, today and forever.  Glory to God!

(Watch those refuters who attempt to use the Bible “selectively” to argue their position.  If they don’t believe, why use a tool meant for Believers?)

Believing in God is a choice!  I respect the choice of those who do not believe and they should also respect the choice of those who do believe!  It really is just that simple.  At the end of time, we shall all know the truth and even now–it is the truth that sets us free!  Love to love you!

 

 

O Lord our God!

“O Lord our God, other lords have ruled over us, but Your Name alone, do we honor!” (Isaiah 26:13 paraphrased)

God is known by many names, but has had only one primary role in the lives of Believers–The creator of all things and without Him, nothing was created.

A lord–is a ruler over others, mandates what others may or may not do in order to keep peace and harmony in the midst of people. English Lords ruled over land and the people worked the land; usually for the benefit of all, but of course there were some greedy lords who only thought of themselves.

When settlers first came to what is now known as America, some of those same traditional thoughts presided in the minds of those who wanted to live like the very people from whom they had left in England–the lords who wanted to rule everyone else.

Think about this–we understand the lordship of people over other people, so why don’t we understand the Lordship of God over us who believe? Everything we have, we have because of Him; everything we are able to do (constructively and productively), we are able to do because of Him. But do we honor Him as Lord?

Today, let’s make a decision to honor The Lord, who is Lord over all and live like we love Him! Hallelujah!
