Ever had somebody look you square in the eyes and lie to you? Or tell you they were going to do something, and then never follow through? For 6 months I promised my wife I’d move that old grill from the back yard around to the front for pickup.
“I’ll do it”, I declared. But I didn’t.
A.W. Tozer wrote, “The most important thing about you is what comes into your mind when you think of God”. That’s because how you perceive God affects everything about you. Counterfeit, bogus perspectives of God need to be exterminated from our thinking. We need to attack these false images of God as we would a life-threatening disease. And why is it so important to have a proper view of God? Everything else is simply idolatry.
