Dear Church Family,
God warns us against idolatry. It’s not just something that occurred in biblical times, but is very present in our lives today.
Old Testament scholar Christopher Wright says that when we attempt to place anything, no matter how innocent or laudable, in the place of God, it becomes an idol that must be dethroned, so that we may worship the one true God alone.
Church reformer Martin Luther wrote, “Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God.”
It’s essential that we understand how innocent things can, over time, take the place of God in our lives.
I pray that you will rededicate yourself to worshiping and serving God and avoiding anything that may negatively impact that relationship.
