“Keep Yourselves From Idols”

22 06 2012

Shalom and greetings I bring to you my beloved friends around the globe in the mighty and resurrected name of our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior, Redeemer and Deliverer. My prayer for you is that you will grow more in grace and love God with all your heart soul and body. Continue to read the rest of my article and be truly blessed in all things that you do for this is the will of God upon your life.Dearly beloved friends, looking at the above topic, many of us would really assumed that the written word of God is telling us to stay away from idols. What does it mean to “Keep ourselves from idols?” Are idols craved images that are put before us and we bow down to worship it or is it more than that?

Dear friends, I believe that it is more to that. Many of us are very ignorant in this matter. What is the written word of God is really telling us to do? What is the message that we need to know from the written word of God? Have we really understood what the scripture is telling us?

Dear friends, here the written word of God is telling us clearly that we should not have any idols in our life.We should not bow down to these idols in our lives and become a total slave to them.So what are the idols are we talking about here? Have we asked ourselves what are the idols that the word of God is referring to?

Dearly beloved friends, do you know the idols that are in your lives today? Many of us who are believers do have idols in our lives but we are not aware of it. Daily we live to worship these idols. The apostle Paul points out that covetousness itself is a form of idolatry ( Col 3:5), so you know that an idol does not need to take the shape of traditionally recognized gods.

Dearly beloved friends, idolatry is the exaltation of anyone or anything above God. Today in your lives, what are the things that you have had made you to exalt yourselves above God? Confronting your idols first requires you to identify them. This is indeed a heart work that asks questions that will address heart issues!

Dearly beloved friends, where do your thoughts drift to and in what do they delight most in? What are you most afraid of? What is it that gives the greatest value to your life, without which life would be meaningless to you? What are the things that makes you exalt yourself? What are the things that draws you away from having fellowship with God? Who are what are you trying to control?

Dear friends,today idols have taken their shape in many ways. Are we able to recognize these idols in our lives? We need to do a check and balance on our lives to make sure that these idols of the world do not worm into our lives and destroy us. Many have fallen away from their faith because of these unrecognized idols that are within us. Today, are we ready to do that check and balance and get back to God? Have a blessed day and stay blessed at all times.

God Bless
