All that glitters is not necessarily authentic

Man-made vs God-ordained can mean the difference between knowing God and worshiping our own ideas. Our actions either reflect the invisible attributes of God (powerful divinity) or they suppress God’s truth about Himself (for in Him there is no darkness at all- see I John 1:5). Father, give us grace to be in authentic fellowship with you and Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Only you can change us from self- worshipers to Son seekers, ready to walk as Jesus did. He is the exact representation of You, Father (Hebrews 1:3). You are delighted with His story (Is 53:10)* because He offers to mankind the truth of Your glorious resurrection power. -Teresa

*BecomingWhatGodIntended, Dr. David Eckman

 Romans 1:18-23 (NLT)
18 “But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.[a] 19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.”

21 “Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.”
