I'm sure as soon you see the word "idol" all sorts of images race through your mind. You probably think of little figurines used during worship practices of bygone days or at least something outdated and having no relevance to your life right now. But what if that's not an accurate picture of an idol? What if, at the heart of most (if not all) our problems, our lack of personal satisfaction, our relationship struggles, our identity crises and so much more, there's an idol? You see, an idol can be anything or anyone that captures our hearts, minds, and affections more than God - and that always has devastating effects! Curious about these idols? Want to know more about identifying and ridding them from your life? Then join us for our 5 week series: Idols Suck...the life out of us. August 2nd-30th
Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
And the word of the Lord came to me: "Son of man, these men have taken their idols into their hearts, and set the stumbling block of their iniquity before their faces. Should I indeed let myself be consulted by them? Therefore speak to them and say to them, Thus says the Lord God: Any one of the house of Israel who takes his idols into his heart and sets the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face, and yet comes to the prophet, I the Lord will answer him as he comes with the multitude of his idols, that I may lay hold of the hearts of the house of Israel, who are all estranged from me through their idols.
And I will set my face against that man; I will make him a sign and a byword and cut him off from the midst of my people, and you shall know that I am the Lord.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
