The first commandment, “You shall have no other gods before Me” (Ex. 20:3), or, which is the same thing, “You shall worship the Lord your God and serve Him only” (Matt. 4:10) is the foundation of all those that follow. If we don’t want to keep this one, we will certainly not want to keep the rest.

We consider three things in relation to this first and great Commandment: 

  • That we must believe that God is, 
  • That we must devote our lives to Him, and 
  • How this is to work itself out in our lives.

Put simply, we see that we must love God more than anyone or anything else and worship Him alone.
