(Yesterday 1Cor 10: 1-21)
March 23, 2022
20 and 21; Matt 6:24 we can’t serve two masters and verses 20 and 21, above, is another reminder. We are to be of the world but not in the world and that’s where idolatry lies, in this world. This idolatry stuff is subtle, sneaky; I found myself one day watching live feed of the People’s Convoy in Maryland/DC. Truth be told, it was more than one day. From it’s arrival in Maryland I’ve watched the morning meetings, the daily convoy around the Beltway in DC, the evening meeting. Every day. Until a couple of days ago when the Holy Spirit Who loves me enough, slapped me upside my head and asked me what I was doing. Good question. I just sort of hung my head and apologized. He was right, of course – our Comforter, our Teacher. So now I just check in with the morning and evening meetings and that’s it. Because somehow it was becoming more and more important to me and compared to Christ and all that He’s given me, this event is nothing. Is less than nothing.
But that’s how subtle idolatry is … sneaks in without us even being aware. So, now, using these verses, become aware; make sure that there’s nothing in your life that is more important than Jesus.
