Fear of God Devotional: Temporarily Bedazzled but Ever Idolatrous

Do we have idols in our life that prevent us from serving and loving God with our whole heart?

Craig Houston explains in this video that he is deeply concerned that too many people come to church for an hour each week but then live their life however they please. Unfortunately, many churches promote this wrong lifestyle. They have an entertainment focus, people come and get entertained, and they go about the rest of their lives living in a manner that is not distinct from culture.

This low view of God, His Word, and the church causes people to refuse to give up their place in the world and stand with Christ and His church. There will be a mass exodus when there is a choice to either serve God or to serve idols. Men and pastors need to boldly say that they will cast aside idols and serve God.

Exodus 20:4 (NKJV) – “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”
