Let Us Get Started


This Week:El Echad (The One God)

The entire Old Testament can be looked at as a battle for the title of El Echad - the One God.  

Malachi declared that God is the “one God.” Listen to Malachi 2:10- “Have we not all one Father? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our fathers by breaking faith with one another?” 

This is a declaration of monotheism, the belief in one God. This was unique in the time of the ancient Jews because almost everybody was polytheistic. They believed in many gods and even accepted the gods of others as true gods. However, the God of the Bible claims to be the “one God,” the only God.   In telling the children of Israel to not intermarry, instructing them to destroy other nations and their idols and performing miraculous acts to prove He was the One true God.  In fact, this was the great schema or declaration of Israel. 

Listen to what Deuteronomy 6:4 says: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one”. 

To Israel, God was the one God and every other god was false.

In1 Kings 18, Elijah puts one of the false gods - Baal to the test against El Echad - the One God.  Elijah tells Baal's prophets to prepare a sacrifice to their god, and he will prepare a sacrifice to his God, whichever god answers by fire is El Echad - the One true God.  The prophets of Baal call on their god to bring fire, but to no avail.  Elijah, however, drenches his offering with water, bucket after bucket and then finally calls on God to bring fire to prove He is God: "Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench.  Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, "The Lord, He is God! The Lord, He is God!"1 Kings 18:38-39.

Today, there is a similar attack on the monotheism of the Scripture and that is pluralism. People are proclaiming that there are many ways to God, and some proclaim that the gods in all the different religions are the same god. However, Scripture clearly teaches that there is one God and that the only way to him is through Christ.

Listen to what Jesus said, ‘“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”(John 14:6).

El Echad, the God of the Scripture is the “one God.” There are no other gods and there is only one way to God. The only way to have a relationship with the God of the Bible is through his Son, Jesus Christ.

Think About this:  How has God revealed Himself to you as the One God?How might you approach today differently having been reminded that He is El Echad?

Read and Meditate on these Scriptures thatreveal God as El Echad:

1 Kings 8:60, 1 Chronicles 17:20, Psalm 86:10, Mark 12:29-34, Deuteronomy 32:39




*Listen to or sing along to the hymn “How Great Thy Art”, verses 1-2. Take quiet time to reflect the meaning of those words in the hymn.


Song: How Great Thou Art, verses 1-2


Oh Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.




Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art


When through the woods, and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook and feel the gentle breeze.




*Where in your life do you see God revealing Himself? As Ash Wednesday (February 17th) approaches this week and 40 days of Lent start, write down what this means to you.


*Closing Benediction: May the light of God illuminate the heart of our souls; may the flame of Jesus Christ kindle us to love daily; and may the fire of the Holy Spirit free us to live to the fullest this day and forevermore. Amen.


*CLOSE YOUR EYES for 5-10 minutes and feel the love of Christ wrapping His loving arms around you.You are beautiful and one of a kind -YOU ARE GOD’S MASTERPIECE.


*Blow your candle out to end your quiet journey with God. God bless you until we meet again next week!
