Inasmuch as there is none like You, O LORD (You are great, and Your name is great in might), Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? For this is Your rightful due. For among all the wise men of the nations, And in all their kingdoms, There is none like You. – Jeremiah 10.6-7
All men are looking for something. Man always has. God has put eternity in man’s heart and man is always looking to satisfy what to do with knowledge.
The issue is that people are looking for satisfaction in all the wrong places. Man never will get what he really wants because sometimes he doesn’t even know what he wants. There is nothing and no one like the Lord.
‘Who would not fear You, for this is your rightful due?’
That seems like a fair question to me. Who would not choose to follow the One who knows everything? Who would not choose to follow the One who is all-powerful? Who would not choose to the One who is eternal and never changing? Who would not choose the One who is all-love?
Part of the problem is that people have a wrong view of God and their wrong view of God can come from the way His people represent Him here on earth. A true image of God would draw men to Him. That’s why Jesus said we can summarise the Law by living God and loving others. Our actions too often turn people off from God. When we are full of hate and anger and harsh words and we support public figures who do the same no wonder people don’t want to ‘fear the Lord.’
Most people’s view of God comes though the lives of His people. Let’s be sure that we are drawing men to God and not turning them away. There is none like Him. Our lives ought to reflect that great truth.
