Who You Obey is Your God

Look at this curious dialogue between Jesus and the elite religious preachers/teachers of the day in John 8. Jesus starts by telling them that God and Abraham were not their fathers…

We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only father we have is God Himself.” Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:41b-44

The point is that even religious leaders might be so deceived that they do not know that satan is their lord, master, and father. The one you obey is your god.

Any genuine seeker who wants to be modified, wants to be different, wants to be transformed into godliness, wants to be Christ-like, as we have been asked to do, will hear the words of Christ and God and will put them into practice. If your will is to love God with all your heart, your soul, and your mind, then you will hear His voice.
