The Bible raises a number of questions that help us to form our theology. What do we believe about God?
Moses asked the children of Israel, is the Lord among us or not? Did they really believe that God existed and was present with them in their world? We saw also the question that the Lord raised in Isaiah, is there a god beside me? He wanted us to know that there is only one God.
And then the question was raised by King Derrius. When he asked Daniel in the lion’s den, Daniel, is your God able to deliver you? And of course, he learned that God is able. And our theology teaches us that with God, nothing is impossible.
And then we talked about the question, Is God unrighteous? Sometimes people think that they know more than God. Their theology is that their God would always do things just the way they see it. But in reality, God is not unrighteous, Jesus called him the righteous father.
And today, let’s wrap it up with one more question. This is raised by the Apostle Paul, in Romans chapter three, verse 29. Or is God, the God of the Jews only? Is he not the God of the Gentiles also? Yes, of the Gentiles.
We want you to know that the Bible teaches us that God is the God for all people. It doesn’t matter about our backgrounds, our social-economic position, it doesn’t matter about our ethnicity. It doesn’t matter about our family history as far as religion. God is the God for all people. Yes, he came to the Jewish people, and he used them. They were his chosen people chosen to bring them a Messia into the world. But never did God intend to be God of the Jews only.
In Isaiah chapter 45, hear this message from the Lord, turn to me and be saved all the ends of the earth, for I am God and there is no other.
Our theology is very important. And we need to settle in our minds that God is the God for all people. Let’s proclaim that message and share our faith in Jesus Christ.
