This Week's Lesson: We Are to Worship God Alone (Isaiah 44)

Have you ever contemplated the meaning of worship? We hear this word mentioned often and are regularly called to enter into worship during the beginning and ending of our gatherings, but do we really understand what it means or how it should be practiced?
 
Many agree that worship includes, but is not limited to, the honor, reverence, respect, and devotion to God. The antithesis of worship includes selfish ambitions, actions, thoughts, and words that disregard God; all of which are sin, and are damaging to both our relationship with our Creator and how those around us perceive Him. Sadly, this often leads to turning away from God, and towards the worship of someone or something else. 
 
 Isaiah 44:9 reads, “All who make idols are nothing, and what they treasure benefits no one. Their witnesses do not see or know anything, so they will be put to shame.”
 
 
When we build or follow an idol (something we put in the place of God), we are actually confusing the world around us. Our desire for something else to take the place of God in our lives. Isaiah warned Israel not to do this, and instead called them to remember God.
 
Isaiah 44:21-22 states, “Remember these things, Jacob, and Israel, for you are my servant; I formed you, you are my servant; Israel, you will never be forgotten by me. I have swept away your transgressions like a cloud, and your sins like a mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you.”
 
When we are tempted to put the love of other things before God, let’s remember what God has done for us. Through the death of His Son, Jesus, on the cross, our sins have been paid in full. As a result, we get to enjoy the blessings of a close relationship with God, while simultaneously attracting the world to the loving relationship He offers. For these reasons, let’s never forget that God alone is worthy of our worship.

• Babies & Toddlers: We are to worship only God. God sent Jesus to save us from our sins.
• Younger Preschool: We are to worship only God. He sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross and save us from our sins. We can turn from our sin and celebrate because God saves.
• Older Preschool: We are to worship only God. He sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross and save us from our sins. We can turn from our sin and celebrate because God saves.
• Kids: God alone is worthy of our worship. He sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross and save us from our sins. We can turn from our idolatry and evil ways to rejoice in the God who saves.
