For I know that the Lord is great; our Lord is greater than all gods. (Psalms 135:5)
The psalmist remembers all that God had done for the nation of Israel. God proved to be greater than all the other gods. There was no god like the God of Israel. No god could out perform, love, and remain faithful like the God of Israel. And through Jesus Christ, God has proven the same thing, but this time to the world.
God has proven throughout history that he is greater than “all gods” by doing what no other god or religion had done before. By giving of himself to make things right with his offenders. God did not only require a payment for sin, but he provided the payment for sin. No other god has come close to this. What sets God apart from the rest is that he did not just require a sacrifice for your sins, but he provided the sacrifice for you through his Son, Jesus.
The Apostle Paul summed up the power, effect, and victory of our great God, stating this ”And when you were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, he [God] made you alive with him [Jesus] and forgave us all our trespasses. He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it away by nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and disgraced them publicly; he triumphed over them in him [Jesus]” (Col. 2:13-15).
