Worship God Alone

The first commandment God gave to His people stressed the fact that He alone is God. There is no other god besides Him. The second commandment is about the worship of the one true God. God said:

You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. – Exodus 20:4-6 (NIV)

Only God is God. He alone is worthy of worship. People, money, power or anything else cannot possibly satisfy the longing we have that only God can fulfill. When we misplace our worship, we are left empty because only God can satisfy. When we love Him by obeying Him, we discover that He is all we need.
