“Hear, O, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.” Jesus
Jesus was asked, “Which is the most important command?” His answer seems to be a statement, not a commandment. Right?
No, it is the most important commandment of all. All of life starts with this question, “Is there a God?” And, if there is a God, will I trust that God with my choices?
I remember the story of one who denied there was a God. And since there was no God, they only had to listen to themselves and their feelings and urges. Let’s just say it led to a very “interesting” lifestyle.
The Lord, in His love, sent a pastor into this person’s life who simply loved on them. They became friends. They had wonderful discussions over meals and coffee about life and its origins as both were very intellectual.
After time, this person came to realize that there had to be a God. And if there was a God, then their decision making process would have to change. Why? Because if there was a God, then there would be accountability for how one lived. This God, then, controlled the future, not the individual.
This person came to faith in Jesus. And indeed, their life has been radically changed for the better. All because of the commandment that there is a God.
Storms are coming for those who “say” they believe in Jesus. Hear, O, my brothers and sisters. The Lord is God. Are you living as if you are, or Him?
