Simple Truth is sometimes best

You shall have no other gods before me.
Exodus 20:13

A friend of mine shared a link to another blog. It has been haunting me, because as a good Pharisee, I place a high value on being “right” Also, I’ve been doing a bit of thinking on idolatry, and have been challenged by the question “Life has meaning/I only have worth if…”

How do you fill in the blank?

Today, during worship I was reminded and confessed that my identity, my very reason for living is wrapped up in the fact that I am a sinner, saved by grace. My life has meaning because I have been forgiven of my sins by the grace of God and the blood of Jesus. My highest purpose is in bringing glory to the father.

I’m good with that.

What defines your life?
