Does It Really Matter Which God We Worship?
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Tim. 2:5
Today, the media and many false prophets, want us to believe that it doesn’t really matter what we believe. The New Agers would have us think that a crystal hanging from our rearview mirror will somehow empower us.
Some people claim Christians are too narrow. They ask us, “Don’t all roads and beliefs lead to God?” God’s Word makes it clear that “the great King of all the earth” is the one true God. From the book of Isaiah come these words, “I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other.” Isa. 45:5-6.
He is the one true God and He is sovereign over all things, including the nations. While other religions may have their gods, idols, prophets, and saints, no other religion has one who died to save his followers and then rose again from the dead. Yes, my friends, Christ has risen, He has risen indeed! Don’t let anyone try and convince you otherwise. There is only one God, and Jesus is the only way to Him. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6.
Jesus paid the price for each of us. His life was given for our sins. It was the grace of God that allowed Jesus to suffer on Calvary’s Cross. Grace is un-merited and undeserved favor. We serve a loving God who gave us that favor. Let us celebrate each day with a renewed faith and gratitude for what Christ did for each of us.
The Power of Truth:
“Applause, everyone. Bravo, bravissimo! Shout God-songs at the top of your lungs! God Most High is stunning, astride land and ocean. He crushes hostile people, puts nations at our feet. He set us at the head of the line, prize-winning Jacob, his favorite. Loud cheers as God climbs the mountain, a ram’s horn blast at the summit. Sing songs to God, sing out! Sing to our King, sing praise! He’s Lord over earth, so sing your best songs to God. God is Lord of godless nations— sovereign, he’s King of the mountain. Princes from all over are gathered, people of Abraham’s God. The powers of earth are God’s— he soars over all.” Psalm 47 (The Message)
“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.” Titus 2:11
“(God)…who has saved us and called us to a holy life not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time…” 2 Tim. 1:9
Suggestion for Prayer:
Praise God, the only true God, for saving you by grace through His Son, Jesus Christ.
