[PC-USA] 2000-06-11 - God as Our Lord

Passages about God, Part 6

One definition of "Lord" is simply "the Existing One." It is beyond our human capabilities to grasp, but God has always "been" and always will "be." He has neither a beginning nor an end. We should worship Him every day as our one and only Lord. The Greek word translated "Lord" in Mk. 12:29 means the "one who owns a person" (Strong's Lexicon). May we always remember Who owns us.

Psa. 135:5 I know that the LORD is great, that our Lord is greater than all gods. (NIV)

Psa. 90:1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. 2 Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. (NIV)

Ex. 20:2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 3 You shall have no other gods before me." (NIV)

Psa. 11: 4 The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them. 5 The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates. (NIV)

Psa. 7:1 O LORD my God, I take refuge in you; save and deliver me from all who pursue me. (NIV)

Psa 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. (NIV)

Mk. 12:29 "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'" (NIV)
