TOPIC: WORSHIP GOD ALONE
Bible Text: Exodus 20:1-6
“You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God…” Exodus 20:5
Don Moen is one of the great Christian worship singers in our time. His songs evoke God’s worship because they are composed from the Bible. The line in one of his tracks reads thus: “Let every breath, all that I am, never cease to worship you.” God is always worthy of our worship. It is erroneous for anyone to worship God only when he feels like.
After the children of Israel were successfully led by God through Moses out of slavery in Egypt, He gave them the Decalogue (Ten Commandments). The first part of the Decalogue has to do with the worship of God. He warned the Israelites not to worship any other person or image except Himself. This is based on the premise that they were saved for God’s exclusive purpose.
To worship another person or thing is to incur the wrath of God.
There are several things that people worship today. The list includes smart phones, cars, politicians, and money. Is there anything or anyone you honour above God? You need to repent and put God first in your life and your roll call of honour.
Insight: To worship God is to make Him the Captain of your ship.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to be fully committed to worship you with all I am and have.
