God made man – man. Man made god – idol. When God created human it is in the natural. But when man tries to create God who is more supreme than Him, this becomes pride. Idolatry therefore equals pride, as it takes the focus off the Creator to the creation. The creation becomes the object of our worship and when that happens, our sight on our Creator is lost. We than walk away from Him leading our own selfish lifestyle. Idolatry and pride are both sin and require death.
The Bible says that “The wages of sin is death, but the free gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ” (Romans 6:23). Remember that even though your gift is free, it didn’t come cheap! Jesus paid for it with His own blood!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that who ever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16)
Are we living in pride? Do we have idols that take the place where God should be. What do we live for? What are our priorities? Have we lost our sight on God and start to pursue other stuff?
As we approach Easter and Good Friday this weekend, let us bring our focus back to our Creator who loved us so much that He will hang on the cross for our sins. “He made him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf that we may become the righteousness of God.” (2 Cor 5:21).
May we all take this time to reflect on our lives and if we find ourselves guilty of any of the above mentioned, may we all repent before the Lord. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:19).
God bless you all…
Serving with you in His Kingdom with love;
