The LORD our God is one. Who is this God of covenant?

Passage: Deuteronomy 6:1-25

Preacher: John Huizinga

Series: Remember, Renew, Refreshed in the Covenant Promises of God

Keywords: coexist, faith, false god, love the lord, muslims and christians, revelation, trinity, who is god


Part 2 from Deuteronomy on the covenant life. We’ll read from and study together Deuteronomy 6. This chapter has one of the most famous Old Testament verses. Verse 4 says, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.’ Jehovah’s witnesses will misuse this verse to argue against the doctrine of the Trinity. Muslims may reference this verse to argue against the deity of Jesus. Mormons try to explain it away. We’ll ask the question, who is this God of covenant?

I want to encourage you today to shoot for blessing, not just survival
