In the Old Testament and even in the world we live in today people are still praying to gods made by hands or to dead people. This is what we think of when we say idol worship!
Ex. 20:3-4a, You shall have no other gods before Me. 4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God…
GOD WAS VERY CLEAR……HE SHARES HIS GLORY WITH NO IDOL!
What is idolatry?
It is when we create something natural to worship to replace the only and true genuine, authentic God.
Pastor, I go to church and worship God, what are you talking about?
JUST BECAUSE YOU GO TO CHURCH DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE NOT AN IDOL WORSHIPPER!
WHO IS #1 IN YOUR LIFE?
Where do you put your time and money? Where are your priorities? What is your focus? Matt. 6:21, For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
WE IDOL WORSHIP LIKE THIS:
We raise up our families above God. We raise up sports, sleep, Facebook, work, money, partying, our toys, and of course the opposite sex! THESE BECOME THE OTHER gOD BEFORE THE ONE AND TRUE GOD!
He gave us stuff and people to love & enjoy, but never to worship.
TODAY ASK YOURSELF A SERIOUS QUESTION – WHO DO I BOW MY KNEES TO?
WHO DO I REALLY WORSHIP?
If you do not have 1 1/2 hours a week to come to God’s home as He instructed……..THEN WHICH gOD’S HOUSE ARE YOU SPENDING TIME IN?
