I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me."
(Because of this magnificent and awesome Truth,
God has every right, even the divine imperative,
to declare to us Who He is and to draw us to Him.
These truths alone direct us to the next Truth
that we need to worship Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength,
and to put no other gods before Him.
He calls us to worship Him, not because He needs our praise and adoration,
but because He knows what is best for us,
that when we give our worship to Him,
we grow into the mature and healthy beings
that He has designed us to be.
Since He is completely awesome, supreme "Other,"
no "god" that we build with human hands or human thoughts have any power
other than to delude us and to distract us from the Living God.
If this is Truth, if He is Truth, then why should we fear today.
If this is Truth, if He is Truth, then why would we ever doubt
that this God has spoken to us and over us His beckoning call to come to Him.
These profound truths remind us that we belong to Him today
and all that concerns us today is His concern and His responsibility.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
