Because He is God

God replied to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM,” and then said, “Tell the Israelites: ‘I AM sent me to you.’” (Exod 3:14 [ISV])

We should choose God because He is God, we ought to choose him for who He is. He deserves to be the only one in our lives he does not deserve competition with gods that exist anywhere around the world. It is unthinkable that man has chosen creation over Creator as their god. He began reminding Israel that he is God and there is none other in his commandments saying “I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You are to have no other gods besides me.(Exod 20:2-3 [ISV]) He is the one who made all to exist, has no beginning and no end one whose worship is due “Fear God and give him glory, because the time for him to judge has arrived. Worship the one who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” (Rev 14:7 [ISV]) “Beside me there is none else”

What proof do we need to acknowledge this God? What else need be done to make us realize that he is God and that it is our duty to honor him and worship him alone? What has the gods of trees, animals, money, sun, moon and many other done to deserve our worship or loyalty? Look at Peter and the apostles’ reply with affirmed faith, “We must obey God rather than people. (Acts 5:29 [NET]) the three Hebrew boys said;But if not, rest assured, your majesty, that we won’t serve your gods, and we won’t worship the golden statue that you have set up.” (Dan 3:18 [ISV]) God’s Word must be recognized as above all human legislation. A “Thus saith the Lord” is not to be set aside for a “Thus saith the church” or a “Thus saith the state.” The crown of Christ is to be lifted above the diadems of earthly potentates. . . E.G. White {BLJ 61.3}

I cannot fail to remind and re-emphasize the importance of making right choice concerning the master of your life. “…many have refused to recognize Jehovah’s supreme rulership, and have chosen to remain under the black banner of the originator of all rebellion against the government of heaven.”  –E.G. White (RH, October 18, 1906 par. 15}

If you were to be asked, why God? The answer should be, ‘because he is God’ We do not to qualify God for him to be God mortal being cannot adequately define Him because they came to being by his powers, their imaginations are limited therefore their understanding of God is limited. Psalmist says ‘the Lord is great and rich in power’ that is the God of heaven Lord of Lords, almighty, everlasting God. Let God be God.
