I read recently about a man who prided himself on being an expert archer. However, his secret has come to light. He shot his arrows at the side of a barn and afterwards painted a bull’s eye around them. Many of us are just like that poor deluded man. We create a god of our own liking and then convince ourselves that he is real. Fortunately, the Bible provides the true picture of God. The Psalmist wrote, “…the Lord most high is awesome. He is the great King of Kings over all the earth…God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne…He is greatly exalted.” And it is before this holy, powerful, all knowing God that we will all, one day stand. The Apostle Paul affirmed this, writing, “…each of us shall give account of himself to God…” When we do, we will need Jesus to stand beside us, as our Advocate.
