Who do we serve?
the prisoner of the Lord,
beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,
with all lowliness and gentleness,
bearing with one another in love,
endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.“
Eph 4 : 1 – 3
To paraphrase 1 Cor 13 : 1, – without Love (God), one might just as well be preaching to the trees. This photo remindes me of being engaged in some grand speach – proclaiming what I believe others need to hear. If my god is my own ego, the self I identify who ‘I am’ with, then it is my self absorbtion and pride that will flow from my mouth when I speak of my faith. In fact – in every single action I take. What a way to spend my life eh! – deludedly devoted to a self created god which I then allow to make my life’s choices – perpetuating a hell on earth me thinks!.
To me the way to Love God is to live his teachings, allowing his word (Jesus) to be “a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path”. To worship this way is to give my will to God by making my choices based in the teachings of Jesus as given in the Holy Sriptures. The problem is – do I interpret the scriptures correctly – do I live my life in the ways taught by Jesus and do I do all as willed by God? No, I do not and I know of no one who fully does.
and God Bless
