If you are rejecting God, do you really know Who you are rejecting? Follow along with Pastor Wil Owens to get a picture of God as He reveals Himself to us in Psalm 36.
“The world views an unbeliever as one who has courageously broken the chains of religion and has set himself free to live his life to the fullest by walking according to his own interests, agenda, and desire. The world celebrates the one who denies the authority of any person or any god above him. But that’s not how God sees the one who rejects Him.
Psalm 36 says to the unbeliever, ‘If you are going to reject God, look at who you are rejecting. You don’t see the true God, you see a God of your own making. Look upon the true God. Look, behold, and live!’ God is not anything like you think Him to be. God is a great God.
Often, the unbeliever sees himself as unrestrained, unencumbered by the rules and ways of God. He or she is self-made with no need of a god. Religion is for the weak. He is strong enough and wise enough to find his own way. God is only there to take away his happiness, so he seeks to do away with God, convinced that his way is much better and far more rewarding than allegiance to God. But that’s not how God sees the one who rejects Him.”
