Sermons about Idolatry

Turning Our Hearts Back to God

Date: July 18, 2021 | Speaker:

We were created to worship God and bring Him glory. However, sometimes we lose sight of that and choose instead to put other things in the place of the love, devotion and worship that belong to Him alone. When that happens we are, in a very real sense, worshiping other gods on the altar of our heart. God will use any means necessary to destroy those idols and turn our hearts back to Him. Are there any areas of your heart that need to be given back completely to God?

Obeying God When it Doesn’t Make Sense

Date: July 11, 2021 | Speaker:

If God only called us to do things we could easily do, to give what we could easily give, then we really wouldn’t need Him at all. His calls always stretch us beyond our limits and our resources so that we will be forced to trust completely in Him. Is there anything God has already prompted you to do that you’ve been putting off because you feel unequipped or incapable? Why not step out in obedience and faith today and watch how He will use you!

Not All Prophets Are True Prophets

Date: June 20, 2021 | Speaker:

How do you know if the sermon you’re listening to is the true Word of God and not false teaching? Are you able to spot counterfeit Christianity? Not everyone who says they have a word from the Lord actually has a word from the Lord. So be alert and pray for discernment! Satan often uses false prophets to draw people away from the truth and ruin their lives. Don’t be one of them!

The Secret to Being Fully Satisfied

Date: April 25, 2021 | Speaker:

If you’ve just finished your favorite meal and dessert and you’re completely full, the last thing on your mind is to go out looking for another meal. There’s no need to because you’re already satisfied. One reason we so often choose to sin is because we’re actually trying to fill an emptiness inside of us; an emptiness we believe will be filled by that sin. But there is only one way for us to ever be fully satisfied, and once you discover that, your life will never be the same!

Exchanging God for Other Things

Date: January 31, 2021 | Speaker:

Did you ever demand to get your own way, even against the advice of others, only to end up suffering the consequences of that poor decision later on? Sometimes we do the same thing with God. Instead of following His Word, we demand to go our own way, which always ultimately leads to trouble and heartache. Today’s message reveals what’s really driving us to act like that, and helps us learn how to avoid the mistake of exchanging God’s ways for our own.

God is Not Your Good Luck Charm

Date: January 24, 2021 | Speaker:

A spare tire. An insurance policy. A fire extinguisher. These are things we keep around somewhere in case of an emergency. Usually they’re out of sight gathering dust because we never think about them until something goes wrong. Sadly, some people treat God this way. They have no time for Him, but the minute trouble comes, they run and grab God like He’s some kind of good luck charm, begging Him to fix their problems. If this has been your view of God, there is a much better relationship he desires to have with you!

The Downward Spiral of Sin

Date: November 1, 2020 | Speaker:

No one ever thinks that sin will completely destroy their life. Sin usually starts out small, but it continues to grow until one day it has control over us and we find ourselves enslaved by it. Disobeying God in some small way today may not seem like a big deal, but it will eventually lead us to a destination we never intended to go! We must be alert to the small areas of disobedience in our life, and never be content to let them go unchecked.

You Can’t Follow God by Accident

Date: October 18, 2020 | Speaker:

How would God rate our service to Him right now? Is it a sincere, fully-devoted service, or are we still holding onto things that displease Him? Living a life of faithfulness to God will not happen by accident. It will only happen if we choose to put Him first every single day of our lives, and put to death every “idol” that is taking His place. Is there anything God has told you to get rid of that you are still allowing to reside in your heart?

Destroying the Idols in Your Heart

Date: July 5, 2020 | Speaker:

When God sent His people into the Promised Land, the first thing they had to do was to locate and completely destroy every place of idol worship. God knows that any temptation we leave intact in our life will entice us away from pure worship to Him. Are there any “idols” that you have set up in your heart that are disrupting your true worship of God?

Are You Committing Spiritual Adultery?

Date: June 21, 2020 | Speaker:

Imagine a married couple saying how committed they are to each other, but then asking if they can still date other people. How disturbing that would be! Yet we often do the same thing as followers of Christ. We declare our total allegiance to Him while our hearts pursue idols of every kind. He has made it clear that He will not accept anything less than our total commitment. Are there any areas of your life that you still have not surrendered completely to Him?

Instructions for Life

Date: June 14, 2020 | Speaker:

Did you ever try to assemble a complicated piece of furniture without using the instruction manual? When you’ve got five screws and a hinge left over, you realize you should have followed the directions. Messing up a home project may be bad, but it’s nothing compared to messing up your life! God has given us the Instruction Manual for life, and if we choose to ignore it, we don’t stand a chance. So, what are you using for your directions?

The Absence of the Presence of God

Date: February 9, 2020 | Speaker:

Imagine how amazing it must have been for the Israelites in the wilderness to know that the very presence of God lived just on the other side of the curtains of the Tabernacle. God, in all His power and glory, was… right there! But in time, they began to take God’s presence for granted, and their hearts turned away to idols. As a result, they lost His presence! Did you know that God still longs to dwell with us today, but He will not do so if we have any other “gods” before Him. Are we actively cultivating our hearts to be a pure, holy, welcoming place for God’s presence to dwell?
