2Why do the nations say,
    “Where is their God?”
3Our God is in heaven;
    he does whatever pleases him.
4But their idols are silver and gold,
    made by human hands.
5They have mouths, but cannot speak,
    eyes, but cannot see.
6They have ears, but cannot hear,
    noses, but cannot smell.
7They have hands, but cannot feel,
    feet, but cannot walk,
    nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
8Those who make them will be like them,
    and so will all who trust in them.
(Psalms 115:2-8, NIV)

We have a living God. We have a living God! Why is that important? What good is a dead god? A god made out wood, or silver, or gold. They can do nothing because they are not alive. Our God is alive! He hears our prayers and responds to them! He hears our requests and answers! He is never changing, but always with us. Why is having a living God important to you?
