Seems like an odd question doesn’t it? If a toddler asked you to move your car, you might think that is pretty cute. You might even think it is a little funny, but ultimately you would dismiss that request and about 5 minutes later you might even forget it happened. Does this scenario seem a little too familiar as you compare it to your relationship with God? How often do we simply brush off His request as though He is that 3 year old toddler? Do you feel comfortable treating the God of the Universe in such a way? God tells us to be in church and we brush off his request. He tells us to forgive and we hold grudges almost without thought.
What does it say about us and our respect (or lack of) for God when He tells us to be a part of His plan of reaching the world with the gospel, and yet the priority of our life reflects a totally different priority? Can you push Him aside like you would the toddler? Have we truly forgotten who is asking?
The One who is asking is the King of the Universe. He is the Creator, all-powerful, self-existent, and everywhere present. Around His thrones are countless angels who worship night and day, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD God Almighty!” Can you afford to ignore this God? Can you push Him aside? Don’t forget who is asking.
