Idol Burning.

December 11, 2009

Have you ever took the time and really looked at your idols?

Here’s how you find out what you idolize.

If God were to ask you to give up something, what’s the one thing you wouldn’t give up? What is it?

Is there something in your life that you are worried that God will ask you to give up?  It could be a job, a person, a relationship, an xbox.  It can be all sorts of things.

The problem with Idols is its something taking the place of God in your life.  It might sound cliche but God needs to be above every single thing in your life.

I’ve recently felt convicted of the things I’ve made idol in my life.  For instance, as to where my money goes, it mostly goes to me pleasing myself.  So in a way I am putting up myself as an idol.

The conviction goes further, there have been times in my life where I have given up certain sins, or whatever, and I don’t think I was always just doing it for God.  Sometimes it was for other people, or how people would think of me, or my own self righteousness.

I want to be the kind of person that has no idols.

This is unlikely though.  I do want to be a person that can continually recognize what I am idolizing and give that up.  Not only that, but I want to give it up to God.  I don’t wanna give these things up so I save more money, or stop doing something that is harmful to me, I want to stop them for God.  I want to stop idolizing things so my relationship with God is not hindered.

What do you guys idolize?
