Big Ideas:

  • God is one. There is only one God. There are no other gods.
  • There is no being like God. He is the most powerful, smartest, most controlling force in existence.
  • Since there is only one God, He is the most important being – past, present, and future.

Bible Story:

Exodus 22:1-31

God’s people chose to stop worshipping the one true God and instead decided to make a god of their own. Moses helped the people see that there is only one God.


God Is – God Gives

“God is” means that there is only one god in the universe. He alone is Lord over everything that exists, and He alone is worthy of our worship. This also means that every good thing that exists comes from God. All good things come from Him because goodness is a part of who He is as the one true God. It is a part of His nature and character to be good, and everything that comes from God is good. Thankfully, God has not chosen to withhold His goodness from His creation, but instead gives it freely to us.
