The Correct View

To maintain a proper view of God we have to work to regularly affirm God’s sovereign and authoritative role as the King and Shepherd of our lives. We cannot think accurately of God without consciously adjusting our view of ourselves. If God is the exalted Director and Guide, then we must purpose to see ourselves as his followers and learners. The ancient worshippers of Israel regularly reinforced this essential perspective by singing lyrics like these from their inspired repertoire of worship songs: “Know that Yahweh is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture” (Psalm 100:3). Those may seem like obvious biblical affirmations, but how easily we are enticed to live as though this were not the case. So when you are tempted to see yourself as self-sufficient or self-directed, realize that your theology has instantly become heretical. For God to be God in our lives, we must rightly view ourselves as his obedient and responsive sheep, who are ready and willing to faithfully follow our Great Shepherd.
