Today you should read: Deuteronomy 4:15-31

What are idols?  An idol is anything that we worship other than God.  It can be a person like a boyfriend or girlfriend, spouse or child – a job – a hobby or sport – an addiction or habit.  

What do you worship besides God?  How much of your attention does it get?

For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.  Deuteronomy 4:24

Idols bring spiritual destruction because:

Idols diminish our focus

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.  Matthew 6:24

Idols steal our passion for God

Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them.  Jonah 2:8

Idols redirect our heart

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.  Matthew 22:37

So – what are the idols in your life?  God’s Word tell us to…

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.  1 Corinthians 10:14

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.  Colossians 3:5
