Why We Worship 22

I am taking time each week to ask myself "Why we worship"

A chorus that we sing and a memory verse we learn as children tells us that

  Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

And today I want to think about truth.

Perhaps one way to think about it is to consider the opposite of true which is false. 

So we can say that God is not false.

God has no lies in Him

          God has no deceit in Him

                    God has no evil in Him

Also it means that God is not a false God.

God is not an imitation God

          God is not an idol or image

                    God is not the wrong God

God is the right God

God is the true, living God.

When Jesus was praying to His Father (in John chapter 17) on behalf of the ones who would trust in Him He described God the Father as the only true God.

The verse above also tells us that knowing God, the only true God is what it means to have Eternal life.

We mostly tend to talk about Eternal life as the life we have after we die and that living forever is the main goal or reward for a Christian but here Jesus is saying that

it is not 

living forever that we should be looking forward to 


instead it is knowing God


surely that must start 
in this life

Do you know this one true living God?

Do you know the right God?


  1. Hello, Sandra! I enjoy reading through this series you're doing, but this one I REALLY like. So simple. So profound. Blessings!

    1. Thank you Kaylene, I get so much out of this myself each week I'm glad it touches others too.

  2. Well, all I can say, which I do often, is: He is IT. I also say, God is BIGGER! I never consider any conflict in the spiritual world. He's got the universe and the foreverness of the foreverness forever. That's on my heart. Day by day.

    1. Again Caryjo, I agree He is Bigger than anything.

  3. Yes, Sandra, we can build our lives around the foundation of God's truth. Everything else fits when we acknowledge that He is truth. We can rest on the promises because His Word is truth. ~Pamela

  4. Hi Sandra! This is so simply put that it makes it so clear. Thanks so much!
