#5083 – Useless Idols

Good morning people who turn your backs on any and all idols.

1 Samuel 12:21 NIV Do not turn away after useless idols. They can do you no good, nor can they rescue you, because they are useless.

This is one of those verses that is very honest and blunt. We need to hear this message today.

Idols are useless; completely and utterly useless. They are good for nothing. They are powerless.

Idols are false. They are fake. They are useless.

Yet too many times, we have them in our lives. Of course we don’t think we do. After all, we don’t have a physical idol that we bow down and worship as some religions do.

But is that all an idol is?

Please read the following three statements slowly.

An idol is anything that grabs our attention more than God.

An idol is anything that we put our confidence in more than God.

An idol is anything that we gain more pleasure from than God.

This is a time to forsake all idols and to walk with the one true God.
