Who is God?

So many today love to say that God is Love!
The American people have misinterpreted that saying to mean that a God of love, must be a God of acceptance of all things! Now, that last prepositional phrase is most important. You see, God does accept you as you are, but not in order to keep you as you are. God accepts all people, but only as a living sacrifice to Him. This means that He accepts you sacrificially laying your life before Him and asking Him to mold you. God does not, I repeat does not, accept sin!
God loves you as a sinner! I'm so thankful that He does!
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8

However God is a HOLY God, and a righteous God! He will not accept sin! He does not call Christians to sin, He calls us to be HOLY!
"But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;" -I Peter 1:15

God is a real God, He is a powerful righteous God, and He is a God who will judge this world!
If you don't believe me now, understand that one day you will believe, you will bow, and you will proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
"I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear." -Isaiah 45:23
"That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;" -Philippians 2:10

Where will you be when you bow? Will you be in heaven? Earth? Or...?
Will you accept God as He is? Will you offer yourself a sacrifice and submit to the call of holiness?
