One God

Daily Devotions:
by Christina Farris

Exodus 20:1-11 KJV
1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

As I unwind my brain this morning, I find myself questioning my own faith, when we spend to much time in either Testament of faith we can get lost of who is charge of all things. We are called as Christians to look to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. However where did faith begin in Jesus. Easy to say New Testament but reality Jesus was Emmanual meaning God with us. We can understand Jesus fully the godhead bodily that Jesus came in human flesh and dwelt with us. He last 33 years before he had to die by humanities kangeroo court. Can we have to much of God, he proved we might destroy the flesh, but we could not keep him buried. When he arose he rose incorruptible.

Now back to Exodus 20 God is a jealous God. He does not want his children listening to the serpent and obeying him. Why, God create, he formed and spoke things into creation. He was the only one to create. To take credit as his work then we fail to recognize God sovernity. To be truthful it is in our vocabulary to leave God out of our thinking, it an effort to worship and to praise God since the garden. How long did it take parents to teach their childten to say thank you. Thank you is a simple word often said whether meant or not. It part of formality.

We are called to thank God and to praise him alone in godly worship to him alone. Is worshipping Father, Son and Holy Spirit in contadiction of this. Not in the least each part of the Godhead makes one God and all are in agreement with each other.

Remember our soul, Mind and spirit wrestle within ourselves, we have not the unity always within ourselves but God does. Our words are not always in conjunction with our thoughts or our hearts. Our soul being the very heart of our Spirit. Our soul wines and dines with the Almighty when we allow Christ and the Holy Spirit into our hearts.

God is merciful to all that honor him. God ask us to work six days and rest on the seventh. Our work boss often give more time off then that. However who cant find work to do on a day off and somethings take more then two. Man seldom rest. Yet those that do find it hard getting going again the following day to work. That why God says one break day.

God's sovernity is a subject throughout scripture. The ten commandments start with honoring God first and foremost. It main curriculum of study woven in all other subject matter.

Dear Heavenly Father help us to honor. praise and worship you alone. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Continual Scripture Study: Colossians 2:6-10 KJV
6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
