The world is full of idols. There are too many things, money, people, lifestyle and so much more that Satan has put in place for many to worship today in the world. Satan told Jesus to bow down to him less we forget.
Therefore, man of God, woman of God, know this and let it sink in. The Lord hates idol worship! Stop building idols in the heart of your hearers.
If you say this about you or another: I have a degree from Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, my father and father in law are on the Forbes list of the richest people in the world, you live in a $10 million dollar home, got 4 planes in your airstrip on your property, and so on and so on every opportune time to speak you are simply saying worship me, worship him or her!
This is already been done by the god of this world, every media outlet is bombarding us already about materialism, who is worthy of “worship” “starism”!
Put Christ Jesus on the pedestal and keep Him there alone! Stop sharing center stage with Christ for it is a dangerous thing! More dangerous for your hearers ‘cos they will worship man when they should be worshipping God the creator of heavens and earth, the one that has the breath of all beings including yours!
Let your essence be Christ in you the hope of glory! Put Christ on the pedestal always and you’ll receive the adulation you crave, for Christ will be revealed in you!
1 Hear me, Lord, my plea is just; listen to my cry. Hear my prayer— it does not rise from deceitful lips. 2 Let my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right. 3 Though you probe my heart, though you examine me at night and test me, you will find that I have planned no evil; my mouth has not transgressed. 4 Though people tried to bribe me,I have kept myself from the ways of the violent through what your lips have commanded. 5 My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not stumbled. 6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. 7 Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. 8 Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings 9 from the wicked who are out to destroy me, from my mortal enemies who surround me.
Through you Oh Lord my heart sings I am free
I am free to love, live, ……………….
I am free to live for you Lord
I know the Son has set me free
I am free to be who you Lord created me to be –
A shinning light of love that shatters every form of darkness
