Today’s society is greatly concerned about the thoughts and actions of the masses.  They are often concerned with doing what everyone else is doing, dressing how the multitudes dress, keeping up with the “Jones’”, and thinking and living the way that is most popular.

God, however is not. His Word has quite a lot to say about “one”. Since He is the only God, He only needs Himself to accomplish what He wants done. Man cannot grasp that, because his abilities are finite and he cannot function or think like God.

God quite often, despite how the world hates His dogmatism in certain areas, is more interested in individuals and His one way, rather than the multiple world’s philosophies, which are constantly changing.  Man’s philosophy that more and many are better, often does not line up with God’s desires. This brief study on “one” shows us more about God, and how He is:  

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” Ex. 20:3

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” I Tim. 2:5   Also: Mat. 23:9.

“I and my Father are one.” John 10:30

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Gen. 1:27   Also: Gen. 2:21.

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” Rom. 5:12

“They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Psalm 14:3   Also: Rom. 3:10, 12.

 “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;” Heb. 10:12  Also: John 11:50.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

“Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.” Luke 15:10

“So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Rom. 14:12

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Mat. 6:24   Also: Mat. 23:10, Luke 16:13.

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Gen. 2:24  Also: Mat. 19:5-6, Mark 10:8.

“Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?” John 6:70   Also: John 13:21.

“But now are they many members, yet but one body.” I Cor. 12:20  Also: Eph. 4:4.

“Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.” Philippians 2:2   Also: I Peter 3:8.

God cannot be understood, nor can His ways, with man’s faithless understanding.  His ways often are not logical to man’s understanding, because man’s thinking is very finite. Despite what man teaches, God has only one way and that is His one way.
