Children’s sermon: God–His unique nature

Filed under: Children's sermons — denisedayspencer @ 9:14 pm

Another children’s object lesson based on the doctrinal summaries in the Disciple’s Study Bible.

SCRIPTURES: Isaiah 43:10, 55:9

OBJECT: binoculars (or a small telescope)

I want us to think in our next few times together about God. Who is He? What is He like?

God is totally unique. Now, what does that mean? “Unique” means there is nobody else like Him anywhere.

For one thing, God is the only God there is. This does not mean He is greater or stronger or bigger than any other god. It means there is no other true God! In Isaiah God says, “Before Me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.” There’s never been another God and there never will be.

Another thing that makes God unique is His holiness. To be holy means to be set apart from everything else. It also means to be pure. God alone is completely good and without any sin at all times.

To say that God is unique is to say that nothing anywhere can compare to Him. All that we know about God is what He shows us about Himself. In fact, God is much greater than anything we can ever understand about Him.

It’s a little bit like looking through binoculars or a telescope at a far-away planet or star. The lenses are designed to make a tiny object look bigger to us so we can see it better. But the real star or planet is much larger than what we see in the sky or what we see in the telescope.

We must always remember that God is much greater than anything we may understand of Him or even imagine about Him. God says, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

We should be very glad that we worship a one-of-a-kind God. If there were anyone else like Him, He wouldn’t be God, would He?
