The First Commandment states that we are not to have any God other than the one true God (Exodus 20:3). You may say that you have not violated this commandment for you believe that Jesus Christ is God. Well, so do the demons and they tremble in fear of Him (James 2:19. Acts 19:15). Do you know Jesus as Lord or do you just know of Him like the demons? Do you show your love for Him by keeping His commandments (John 14:15,21) or do you say He is your Lord, even going to church on Sunday, but live like you are god the rest of the week? (Ezekiel 33:31,32. Luke 6:46) Is your love for Him so great that by comparison you hate (i.e., you are willing to be infinitely separated from) your spouse, children, parents, job, wealth, pleasure, etc. (Luke 14:26) If You Can't Say Amen, Say Oh Me!
