MEMORY VERSE: “I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:” – Isaiah 45:5
BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Chronicles 29:10-12
LESSON INTRODUCTION: Some people, called atheists, do not believe in or intentionally deny the existence of God. The Bible calls them ‘fools’ (Ps. 41:1). There are other who believe in the existence of many gods and consult with them based on peculiar needs; they are called polytheists. The Bible unequivocally teaches that there is only one God who created all things, sustains all things, and transcends all things. This is what we believe as Christians. It is worth noting that we do not worship or serve the same God with the people of other religions who also believe that there is only one ‘God.’ Who then is our God and what make him unique?
- OUR GOD IS THE UNCREATED CREATOR.
- OUR GOD IS UNIQUE.
- OUR GOD IS THE UNCREATED CREATOR
As revealed to us by the Bible, we believe that they is only one God who created the Heaven and the Earth (Genesis 1:1). Our God is the creator of both visible and invisible creatures (Colossians 1:16). Our God created all living things (humans, animals and plants) and non-living things (sun, moon, rivers, stars, mountains, etc.)- Ps. 8:3; John. 1-13. Our God is the uncreated creator (Colossians 1:17; Ps. 90:2). In our God, every creature receives life (John. 5:26; Genesis 2:7). Also, our God created and controls times and seasons (Gen. 1:14; Daniel 2:21a).
- OUR GOD IS UNIQUE
The uniqueness of our God is evident in many of his attributes. Our God is the Supreme being and ruler of all that is (Ps.103:19; 115:3). He is the self existent one (Isaiah 45:5-6). Our God is perfect (Ps. 18:30) in holiness (Lev. 11:44; Ex. 15:11) power (Ps. 62:11), goodness (Ex. 34:6) and wisdom (Rom. 11:33), etc. Our God is everywhere -Omnipresent (Jer. 23:24), All-powerful -Omnipotent (Rev. 19:6) and, All-knowing -Omniscient (1John 3:20). Our God is a spirit (John 4:24; 2Cor. 3:17). Our God is all light (1John 1:5) and glory (Ps. 19:1). Our God is love (1John 4:8, 16) and loves us with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3).
The sovereignty of our God is expressed in the fact that He does whatever pleases Him (1Chr. 29:11; Ps. 115:3). No one can query him (Isaiah 29:16; 45:9). Our God is eternal (Deut. 33:27; Rom. 1:20).
CONCLUSION: Every Christian must believe and declare boldly that our God is the only God.
