FLEE IDOLATRY

TEXT:1 CORINTHIANS 10:6-14

MEMORY VERSE: “Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry” (1 CORINTHIANS 10:14).

Idolatry is the practice of worshipping an object, image, animal, personality or deity. Idolatry implies denial or rejection of the Lordship, Supremacy and Sovereignty of the Almighty God. Apostle Paul in our text warns the Corinthian Christians to flee (run from) idolatry.

Idolatry does not always mean to erect or bow down to an image, but also means worshipping or placing value on anything or anyone above God. Idolatry could be in the form of hero worshipping (in the world of music, sports, entertainment, politics or technology); the love of money or fashion; placing one’s parents, wealthy persons or a spiritual figure above God.

God will never share His glory with anyone nor give His praise to graven images because He is a jealous God (Isaiah 42:8). God must be first in your life and endeavours. This is only possible when you are saved by grace through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus on the cross of Calvary. There should be supreme love for God and His glory in your heart. Hence, you need to pray for the sanctification experience.

QUOTE: God will never share His glory with anyone.

CHALLENGE: Give God His supreme place in your life.

PRAYER: Lord, dethrone anyone or anything taking Your place in my life.
