Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the three-year lectionary.
Isaiah 44:6-8 boldly declares that there is only one God. Isaiah reports that God says he does not know of anyone else who is God. He is the only one who is from the beginning to the end.
When someone changes the rules in a work environment, we may ask, “Who died and made him god?” In fact, nobody ever died and proclaimed me to be a god. There are times I might like to be in charge of everything, but it would be bad news. The God of the Bible, however, is great news. In a world of small gods, in a world of human initiative, in a world where we let ourselves and others down regularly, we need to know the one who is eternal. This is exactly who we find in the God of the Bible.
