What Is Idolatry?

By   •   December 11   •   Topics: ,

What is idolatry? Idolatry is anything that comes between us and God. Joshua told his people that their nation would be destroyed if they persisted in idolatry, and their souls would suffer eternal death. He said, “You must make your decision today. You must decide whether you want to serve the idols of this life, or the living God.” “Choose you this day,” said Joshua, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” What about you? Are you taking your stand with Joshua? No matter what the cost? I am asking you to choose this day whom you will serve. Our families cannot choose Christ for us. Our friends cannot do it. God is a great God, but even God can’t make the decision for us. He can help, but only we can decide. We have to make our own choice.

Make a decision to accept Christ today.

What are some examples of modern day idols?

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus Christ, take away the idols in my life so that, completely undivided, I may serve You, my Savior.

    I love Jesus. He is the living God.

  2. Denia Alaniz says:

    Thank you for this lesson today. My kids are adults now and God is not part of their lives. I serve God with all my heart and pray my family will come back to Jesus.

    If God has blessed you with much, be thankful, but hold the material blessings loosely. Use them wisely and be ready to help those less fortunate.

  4. Frank Woodrow Tinnin Jr says:

    I can’t imagine living without Jesus Christ. We are already forgiven, just confess. God knows our hearts.

  5. Gerry says:

    It is a major milestone in the development of Christian maturity to understand that we are to hold loosely “material stuff.” Rather, we should be thankful and willing to share the blessings that the Lord has given us.
