    Everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will be saved.—Rom. 10:13.


    Perhaps the first time you saw
    Jehovah’s name was when it was shown to you at
    Psalm 83:18. You may have been surprised to read those words: “That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah,you alone are the Most High over all the earth.†Since then, you no doubt have used this same scripture to help others come to know our loving God, Jehovah.

    Although it is important
    for people to know Jehovah’s name, such knowledge in itself is not enough. Notice how the psalmist highlights yet another truth essential to our salvation when he says:
    “You alone are the Most High over all the earth.â€

    Yes, Jehovah is the most important Person in the whole universe.As the Creator of all things,he has the right to expect full
    submission from all his creatures.(Rev. 4:11) For good reason, then,we need to ask ourselves, ‘Who is the most important person in my life?’ It is vital that we carefully analyze our answer to that question!

    And there is something even more important than knowing His
    Name and that He is the Most High, namely, having the right
    motive for wanting to get to know Him.

    Believing that He exists and that our life depends on Him is simply not
    enough in the long run.

    Trusting that He rewards us for following His ways is a good start,
    but then again, the rewarding of loyalty is not that uncommon in
    our world,

    nor does it tell anything about the ethics this relationship is based on,
    or that of the parties to it.

    Even the demons love one another and stick together; but in an ethical
    sense, what would it be worth to show a character reference provided
    by the top mafia boss to an impartial judge?

    So unless we gain a good grasp of what makes God tick, so to speak,
    and the true meaning of His righteousness, our worship of Him is
    likely going to be deficient and possibly done with a wrong motive.
