Disrespecting God

This is something that is not talked about very often, but maybe we should all consider this concept.  Exodus 20:1-17 {Adapted} “And God spake all these words, saying, I [am] the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt [Sin-Slavery], out of the house of bondage and death, you are my treasured children.  Please do not Disrespect me by making anything at all a God, with it then consuming all your time and attention. Please do not Disrespect me by making Sculptures, Paintings, Mental Pictures to represent me.  Please do not Disrespect me by bowing down yourself to them, trying to serve me through them: for I the LORD thy God get very protective of you and am jealously protective of you.  Please do not Disrespect me by misrepresenting my name in thought, word, or action, for I respect you.    Remember my Sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:  But the seventh day [is] the Rest of the LORD thy God:  For in six days God made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: I God spent that whole day with your ancestors, now today, I want to spend that whole day with just you.  Please do not Disrespect me through your Parents, Honor your father and your mother: Remembering that I God am your Heavenly Father.  Please do not Disrespect me by killing a fellow human, by thought or deed, for it hurts me deeply.  Please do not Disrespect me with any adultery, by thought or deed. Please do not Disrespect me by stealing, by thought or deed, I God provide for you daily, so please do not waste any of my gifts that I bountifully supply upon you.  Please do not Disrespect me by bearing false witness against thy neighbor in slander or gossip, they are my children as well.  Please do not Disrespect me by earnestly desiring that which is not yours, neighbor’s houses, lands, possessions, employees, especially their Husband or Wife, or their anything, for I God am your great Provider, please respect me in everything. Thank you for doing that for me, Remember; I Really Truly Love You.”

John 14:13-16 “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].            If ye love me, keep my commandments.  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever;” Philippians 4:6-7 “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  1 Corinthians 6:17-20 “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.  Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body [within his body].  What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” Genesis 6:5-6 “And God saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.”  Psalm 40:5 “Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.”  Psalm 139:17-24 “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!  [If] I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.  Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.  For they speak against thee wickedly, [and] thine enemies take [thy name] in vain.  Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? And am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?  I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.  Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:  And see if [there be any] wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Isaiah 55:6-9 “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.  For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD.  For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”      

John 4:23-24 “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.”  We all know what “The Lust of the Flesh is,” but how many of us are so held by the “Love of God as found in Christ Jesus our Lord,” that we have the “lust of the Spirit,” to serve only God, Respecting him in our every word, thought, deed and action, being washed in his spirit and cleansed by his word.  So are you and I “Disrespecting God” in anything at all?  Time for a lifestyle change, a Heavenly One.
