Stand Firm on the Word

Scripture Reading: 1 John 2:15-17  

When most people hear the word idolatry, they think of pagans worshiping statues and assume, "That's one subject that can't apply to me."  Oh, yes it can.

You don't have to keep a carved, wooden tiki idol in your backyard to be an idolater.  You don't have to visit a Buddhist shrine.  Any time you worship the thing God created as a god, that's idolatry. 

We can get so caught up in the things of this world - jobs, money, people, material things - that we forget our purpose here on earth. We should live in the world but not of the world.  Spend some time analyzing your walk with the Lord.  Are there things that you are placing above your relationship with God?  Ask Him to reveal things in your life that are being placed above God.
