Sermons about Golden Calf
This week we look at a man who was given a clear promise from God, but still walked away from Him, taking a whole lot of people with him.... ....we'd never do that would we?
What is worship? What does God ask of us in worship and why? Where does music fit into it all? What needs to happen before I can worship? We hope to answer these questions as we look at when God started worship for his people as a nation and how it applies to the church today.
We see in Israel's worshiping the golden calf a picture of all idolatry. Idolatry establishes a counterfeit god, religion, and salvation. God jealously protects our love for him and forcefully opposes our idolatry. The way out of idolatry is repentance, grounded in our sure hope that God will show us mercy through Jesus our Savior. Idols only bring us weariness and unending demands; only Jesus can give us life, rest, and joy.
