Then that's your God
Obedience to God's commands implies an obedient state of the heart, and therefore nothing is obedience that does not imply a supreme regard to the authority of God. Now, if a man's heart is right, then whatever God enjoins he regards as of more importance than anything else. And if a man regards anything else of superior weight to God's authority, that is his idol. Whatever we supremely regard, that is our God—whether it be reputation, or comfort, or riches, or honor, or whatever it is that we regard supremely, that is the God of our hearts.
