2 Kings 17.30
custom-made god for each people
this is such a great acid test for who we’re serving, if we’re really pledging allegiance to a real master, if we’re really following the real king of kings - when our obedience does not come in our own terms. following you comes with your terms, not ours - every other alternative puts us back on the throne of our hearts, no matter how disguised, no matter how subtle. may we never fall for such deception, may we keep our guard against the comfortable, when we call the shots, when it’s our logic that is followed instead of yours. thank you for putting us in community so we can constantly keep each other in check and not be left dangerously alone with only what we think of your word in isolation.
