REFLECTIONS ON TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE(S):

There is no one like the Lord our God.

In fact, humanity would not and could not create the God of the Bible. If you look at the religions of the world, the “gods” they claim to serve are very predictable. They are generally much like us, only much more powerful. They also typically demand complete allegiance, they punish disobedience, and there is really no way to please them except to work really, really hard for them without messing up.

The God of the Bible balances Law and Grace beautifully. He demands complete obedience and yet He paid the sin debt that each of us owe if only we will look to His Son and believe. In doing so, He demonstrated how He can love us (wanting us to spend eternity with Him in Heaven) while also loving justice (demanding that every guilty sinner spend eternity in Hell).

Yet, we also see the other “gods” of the world seeming to be indifferent to the plight of mankind. They seem aloof and uninterested in our lives.

But the God of the Bible, the One True God, is deeply interested in us.

Psalm 113:5–6 (CSB): “Who is like the Lord our God — the one enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?”

When He created Adam and Eve, He walked in the Garden with them. He enjoyed relationship with them. When they sinned, He provided a way for humanity to be made right so that we could still enjoy relationship with Him. Ultimately, because of the cross of Jesus, a way is made possible for us to spend eternity with Him forever.

We serve a wonderful God! There is no one like Him!
