Proverbs 4:7 NIV

The main goal of all religions is to teach us about god. It has been referred to as God-realization. Adam Clarke puts it this way, “It is the punctum saliens in all religion to know the true God, and what he requires of man, and for what he has made man.” I thought you might enjoy a little Latin this morning to class things up. Simply put we want to know God. He has built the desire deep in our soul. Then He gave us the way to find Him. He also built into our soul and His truth the filters to help recognize the counterfeit and empty paths leading to false gods. Many of us spent some of our limited heartbeats pursuing false gods. Some people believe we are all gods. Others chased vengeful, evil caricatures of Him. In the end we all reach a point of decision. We will either place Him on His rightful throne in our story or we place ourselves there. Oh we may want to convince ourselves and others that we found god elsewhere but ultimately any thing other than Jesus and Him sacrificed for our sin opening the way to His Father is a lie. The one true God doesn’t share. Today serve the one and only God and run the others out of your experience. #BeTheEdge
