Live Free - Have No Idols
Worship is not just a Christian activity; it's a human activity. All people are always worshiping - atheists, agnostics, Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, etc. The question is never, "Do you worship?" rather, "Who, where, why, and how do you worship?" Entertainment, sports, tradition, family, finances, vocation, school - we think it's just the way we do life when, in fact, these could be our gods. This sermon examines the way we divest our energy - in worship or in idolatry.
Like the ancient Israelites, God's people today often desire the gift of salvation but remain enslaved to sin. The truth is our behavior is merely a result of whom or what we worship. Our gods influence our priorities, values, morality, choices, and ultimately our eternity. This sermon series focuses on the life under the protection, wisdom, and goodness of a Father who loves us.
