Lent, day 3: not gods, but God's

We confess and acknowledge one only God, 
to whom only we must cleave, 
whom only we must serve, 
whom only we must worship, 
and in whom only we must put our trust'

opening words, ch. 1, Scots Confession of Faith, reflecting the texts: 
Deut 6:4; 1 Cor. 8:6; Deut 4:35; Isa 44:5-6

In these early, baby-step days of Lent, the opening words of the first article of the Scots Confession came to mind.
I'm still convinced this one's much better than the Westminster Confession, but I digress.
Earlier today, thinking of ashes and Ash Wednesday, the thought that 'we are God's, not gods' came echoing back.
Whose are we?
Who do we serve?
What is our point and purpose?
I love how the Scots Confession sums it up so succinctly.
