Idols of the Heart

An idol is anything or anyone that begins to capture our hearts and minds and affections more than God.

Follow the trail of Time, Money, & Affections

Worry about it
Build Schedule around
Perfect it
Get angry
Fear & Anxiety
Despair & Depression

Sacrifice for it
Spend time
Talk about
Serve it
Protect it
Think about it

1. Am I willing to sin to GET it?
2. Am I willing to sin if I think I’m going to LOSE it?
3. Do I run to it for REFUGE instead of turning to God?

Take Aways

Do I have burning anger?
Am I a patriot without compassion?
Are there other idols in my heart?
How can you be free from sin & death? – Repent of your sin. Believe in the Son of God, Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
