I am currently reading a book called “What is the Gospel?” the following two quotes are from this book:
“It is our obligation, as people created and owned by God, to give him the honor and glory that is due to him, to live and speak and act and think in a way that recognizes and acknowledges his authority over us. We are made by him, owned by him, dependant on him, and therefore accountable to him.”
Yet we rebel and deny the worship due to Him and rather serve ourselves….
“That’s a truly revolting image isn’t it? For human beings to consider their Creator and then decide that a wooden or metal image of a frog or a bird or even themselves is more glorious, more satisfying, and more valuable is the height of insult and rebellion against God. It is the root and essence of sin, and its results are nothing short of horrific.”
– Greg Gilbert in What is the Gospel?
