Our sermon text today demands that we, like Israel of old, reckon with the question: is there any other god? Is there any other Savior? That is the fundamental question, the most important question in your day to day life. When the kids are screaming and disobeying, the question is: is there any other god? When temptation hits in the form of pornography or peer pressure or loneliness, the question is: is there any other god? When your wife is critical of you, your boss at work, or no one has had a nice thing to say in days, the question is: is there any other god? Is there any other Savior? When storms hit: cancer, job loss, broken relationships, when you are hurt, abused, sinned against, in your confusion, despair, fear, the question is the same: is there any other god? Is there any other Savior? And the answer to that question determines how you will respond every time. If there is another god, if there is another Savior you may despair, you may sin, you may give in to temptation, you may snap, you may blow up, you may be bitter, you may nurse your grudge. But if there is no other god, if the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of Israel, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is the only God, the only true God, the only Savior then we cry out to Him, we bow before Him, we entrust ourselves to Him. This is practical monotheism. There is only one God and we know Him, and even better, He knows us: He knows our stories, our situations, our hurts, our sin, our stress, our fears. And so we turn to Him. We cry out to Him. We pray to Him because He is our God. He will save us.
