When we put God in His rightful place it automatically puts us in our place. When we raise Him
up in high regard as He deserves, it automatically lowers us in His presence. But what about
when we refuse? We saw last week with Nebuchadnezzar that because of all he had witnessed
concerning God’s power & might, he had no excuse. But what about someone who hadn’t seen
Daniel interpret his dreams? What about someone who didn’t witness the form of God walking
with Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego in the fiery furnace? What would God do with a ruler
who had only heard about Him?
A lot of people like to use the excuse that since they don’t understand everything in the Bible
completely or since they haven’t publicly professed their faith in Christ, that somehow absolves
them from being responsible to God. And if they don’t vocalize that excuse, they sure live that
way. Of course at times, so do we. So if we turn a blind eye to God will He turn a blind eye on
what we’re doing with our lives? Today’s sermon will show that a loving God who cares for
every part of His creation is always interested in what we do.
