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.

    Today many of us stil in idol worshiping.take for instance.trying to honour our great men and women we find ourselves worshiping them.its true God has given the chance not to creat but decide with what He has already created.

    Yes, I believe that only myself can decide and make choice between My Lord Jesus and different kinds of idolatry. In Jesus name I commands all kinds of idolatry to get out of my life. Amen
