Incomparable God

On May 28, 2006, LifeWay’s Explore the Bible series offered a lesson from Isaiah and Micah titled, “Praise Our Incomparable God.” See blog posts Incomparable God, Matchless God of Wonder, God’s Incomparable Plan, God's incomparable deeds, No one is like Him and What have you learned?.

Step 4 of this week’s lesson, “Commitment: A Path to Effectiveness,” includes Micah 7:18, which begins with “Who is a God like You…?,” a statement of God’s incomparability. This suggests a way to introduce this step. Show a slide of a collage of people, places or things that are marketed as incomparable, and ask class members if the items are really incomparable, or are they just hyped?

The following is an example of the slide I have in mind. Are these items truly incomparable in the sense that they cannot be compared with anything else? The answer is no, and the claim of incomparability is more hype than reality. State that this step will help us commit to God because He truly is incomparable.
