20 Apr The First Commandment
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me” (Ex 20:2-3). Only two powers exist: God and Satan (the source of all false gods). God sets people free from bondage. Satan traps them in it. God creates and builds up. Satan lies and destroys. In marriage a man and woman make a vow of devotion, forsaking all others. This week, examine your devotion. Is your loyalty to the Almighty pure? If necessary, renew your vows to Him. He is your source of true joy, salvation and purpose.
