God Commands Us to Worship Him Alone

Big Truth:

God Commands Us to Worship Him Alone

Deuteronomy 6:4, 14-15

Bible Verse:

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.”

Exodus 20:4-6

Big Ideas:

  • God is one.
  • Idols are false saviors who make empty promises that will never lead to life.
  • The command against idolatry is a call to revere God as He has revealed Himself to be.

Bible Passage:

Isaiah 44:9-20


FOCUS: Living In Freedom

SERIES: Exodus

This series looks at the Ten Commandments given in Exodus 20. The law was given not to restrict God’s people, but to help them walk in freedom as they were created. Throughout this semester, we will learn how we are to live as those who are no longer slaves to sin, but are set free in Christ.
