God, Our Sustainer #165

God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. (Acts 17:24-25)

God is not confined to a building fashioned by human wisdom and erected by human skill. Nor is God sustained by our worship of Him, as though He needs us to confirm His presence, power and dominion over heaven and earth. We did not create God – He created us. We do not sustain God – He sustains us. We worship God “in spirit and truth” because as both Creator and Sustainer He is worthy of all praise and thankful adoration. We serve God because He is our sovereign Lord and worthy of our complete, obedient submission. A day lived without obeying God and thanking Him for “life, breathe and all things” is a day lived without faith. Remember who God is – and who you are because of Him.
