God Knows Worship Defines You
Synopsis: God knows that worship defines you and that is why it is so very important for believers to worship only the “Lord your God.” God invites believers into an exclusive relationship. If we really all desire to get closer to the one God then the closer we all get to God must at the same time bring us closer to one another.
The Ten Commandments commence with God’s word on the subject of the relationship between the Lord and the people whom God has saved. The first four commands in Exodus 20:1-11 make it clear that believers are to have an exclusive relationship with the Lord your God.
Israel often stood alone in their insistence that there was only on Lord. The early church continued that same commitment understanding that they worshipped the only God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
If you are going to worship, then be sure you worship the “Lord your God, who rescued you from … your slavery.” The redeemed are not to worship any other god, nor bow to any image. Believers are to revere the name and maintain the relationship.
