God alone among the Gods

baptism 161Psalm 86

This psalm seems to contradict itself, because it praises God for being unlike any of the other gods, and then states that the LORD alone is God.  The other gods are spirit beings who attempt to control the lives of the nations by forcing them into the bondage of idolatry.   The LORD, the maker of heaven and earth, has no need or desire to keep people in bondage,  By his grace he sets us free, and gives us the hope of eternal life through Christ.  When all is resolved on judgment day, these false gods will have their part in the lake of fire, which is the second death.  Then it will be clear to all that there has always been only one God.

LORD, thank you for bringing us to yourself, so that we can live and love you forever – the only God.
