Sermons about Idol
If you try to live by the Old Testament Laws they may be your form of an Idol. Such as the Pharisees did.
God has been working since before the foundations of the world, and since we are created in His image, that means we are made to work as well. However, because of the fall, work has become corrupted, and we often turn it into an idol in our lives, despite the fact that it leaves no lasting satisfaction, and even adds to our levels of stress and anxiety. Make the commitment to living your life for God, and find that lasting fulfillment in every aspect of your life, including work!
Christians must be disciplined and discerning in a culture so heavily influenced by digital idolatry.
Idolatry is when our ultimate pursuit and prize is something or someone other than God.
Ronnie explains this passage of scripture so that we understand that everything we do we do for Christ. In addition, reminding us to use good judgement in all that we do that we don't cause another follower to stumble or a non-believer to see us as hypocritical and not led by the Spirit.
What is an Idol? Anything that would take priority over God’s Word or will. The main point? Run from anything that would usurp God’s rightful place. The challenge: Don’t put on your slippers when you should put on your track shoes!
An idol is anything we look to in order to receive something that only God can give to us. In this message, Pastor Jeremy identifies an idol each one of us deals with: the idol of approval. Concluding this series, we see that Jesus matters because he frees us from living for the approval of others when we understand the root and danger of it, and the freedom that comes from getting a greater vision and deeper satisfaction in God!
