Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

The human heart is an idol factory! From the earliest of recorded history to present day, we see evidence of idol worship. Anything and everything is suspect to becoming an idol in your life. An idol is more than merely a carved totem. It is anything that we make preeminent—a god. An idol can be a political cause, a hobby, recreation, sports, a celebrity—anything that pushes Jesus from the center of your life.

The really important question is not “Are you a worshipper?” But, rather, “Who, what, how are you worshipping?” The answer to the second question can be determined, and here’s how you do it: start keeping a record of your time, thoughts, energy, and money, and see where they are honestly going. 

Christ followers are thankful that Jesus came to enable us to worship the true and living God through Him. His was a sinless life that unceasingly glorified God. Through His death, burial and resurrection, God reconciles us to Himself. Because of Jesus, we can be worshippers instead of idolaters, and truly glorify God. Because of Jesus, we’re saved from worshipping God’s created things to worship God, Himself. 

As a Christ follower, you have been redeemed by the blood of Christ, the forgiveness of sin [Ephesians 1:7]. So, look beyond the plight of your sin; look to Jesus, In Him you’ll find victory and freedom to be the worshipper you were meant to be!

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:24
