Recently on a trip to visit family I passed a car with this license plate. IANS2NO1. I answer to no one.
I couldn’t help but think that a pretty self-centered, arrogant, foolish person had to be driving that car. Basically, a person that would say that believes they rule their own world. They are at that top of the life pyramid. No one higher than themselves exists.
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” Psalm 14:1
As believers, it is an obvious affront to a Holy God for anyone to truly believe that we answer to no one, living as if we are the god of our own lives. I would venture to guess that no genuine follower of Jesus Christ would have a license plate that says IANS2NO1. BUT…..
I may not have the license plate but, every time I chose my way over God’s way, every time I sin, every time… I am living as if that is MY license plate; I am living as if I answer to no one.
But in truth I do answer to SOMEONE. We ALL answer to SOMEONE – some of us know that to be true now, others will know it to be true when they come face to face with the ONE TRUE GOD.
May you and I choose to live knowing that we answer to Some One.
