“This disaster happened because the people of Israel sinned against the Lord their God who had brought them out of the land of Egypt from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt and because they had worshipped other Gods” (2 Kings 17:7).
Brothers and sisters, we worship a jealous God. The Lord doesn’t want us to glorify anything other than Him and Him alone. Wealth, cars, family members, symbols, statues… are not to be worshipped. Only our God deserved the former. We should never forget that God is all powerful and in control of everything under the sun and in heaven. We must flee from idolatry and focus our eyes on the Lord and do what we can to be more like Him. We must resist sinning against the only God of the universe. If you feel tempted, pray!!! God will help you. He will help me, my family and yours.
One thing is for sure. We can’t do it alone. We need Jesus Christ! It is our only chance… The penalty for disobedience and lack of repentance is too much for us to bear. It ain’t worth questioning God’s commands, thats for sure.
