He is God of All
| Pagans have many
gods. They have gods of the mountains, valleys, rivers, animals, people,
all kinds of gods. But Jehovah of heaven is the one true and living God,
the Creator of this world, the giver of life, and all should submit to His
will. But obviously all do not. Just because somebody rejects God to be
his God does not mean God is not the universal God.
Christians realize who God is and they are privileged to be His children. God is the God of Christians but He offers to be everybody's God. Paul wrote, "Is he the God of the Jews only? Is he not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also" (Rom. 3:29). There is one God and we all shall stand before Him in judgment (2 Cor. 5:10). The folly of idolatry is condemned throughout Scripture. There is no other God before Him. Not until a person understands this fundamental truth will he ever be inclined to submit his will to that of the God of heaven.
