QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR GOD

 

I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:2-3

 

We all have a god or gods that we worship.  Of course it is important that we worship the true and living God.

 

DID YOU MAKE HIM? Vs. 15

Did you create you own god or do you serve the God who is creator? Genesis 1

Many people today have gods that they worship that are not made of silver and gold, but they are gods nonetheless.  Any thing that is more important to me than the true and living God is a god or an idol.

 

DOES HE SPEAK? Vs. 16a

 

There is only one god who truly speaks and that is the true and living God. 2 Peter 1:20-21, Jeremiah 33:3

 

DOES HE SEE? Vs. 16b

 

The true and living God sees everything. Psalm 139:7-12

 

DOES HE HEAR? Vs. 17a

 

The true and living God hears everything. Psalm 139:4

 

IS HE ALIVE? Vs. 17b

 

Our God is very much alive. Exodus 12:14

 

ARE YOU ALIVE? Vs. 18

 

If your God is not alive, then you are not alive spiritually!
