But you haven't obeyed me! What's this that you're doing?
thank you God for pointing out something crucial in our relationship with you. this is one of the greatest displays of your love for those who call you their God - a back-to-basics statement of truth that underlies all things claiming allegiance with you - calling you lord means doing what you say; having you as master to follow and obey and not just a convenient ticket to heaven. you are not just our saviour, you are our God, you are the God of all earth and beyond. what privilege to call you our master, to belong to you, the one whose plans never fail and sees everything from beginning to end, who has the power to carry out not just the best for us but the best for himself! this is the God that we serve, love and obey.
