I have heard it more than once that we are all worshippers.  It is never a question of if we will worship, but what we will worship; what we keep at the center of our affections; where our time, money and emotional energy goes.

If anything other than Jesus is at the center, I  have created an idol that has take Jesus’ place.  I Love 1 John 5:21 in the old Living Bible, “Dear children, keep way from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.” Something, or someone, taking God’s rightful place iin my heart gives birth to a lot of other sin in my life.

Some of the idols (I have an idol factory growing inside my heart) I struggle with are:

  • Praise
  • Success
  • Respect
  • Admiration
  • Reputation
  • Position
  • status
  • Popularity

By His grace, and empowerd by Him,  I need to take that idol up to the top of Mt Moriah and put the knife to it; as God asked Abraham to do when it looked like Issac had become an idol for him and Sarah.
