No other Gods before You,
That's what Your law commands,
But at the very core of this
A heart of love demands.
We cannot put You first, Lord,
If we don't truly love,
All else remains idolatry,
A form of our self-love.
We pose selfish desires
As if they were our due,
And every sin we then commit
Puts us ahead of You.
No competition is allowed,
You only must be first,
But only when we drink of You
Will we no longer thirst.
"You shall have no other gods before or besides Me." Exodus 20:3 (Amplified)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
