Jonah 2:8 ” Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs.”

Anytime we put a “thing” between us and God…that’s an idol.  Anytime we take God off the throne of our heart and put that “thing” in His place…it’s an idol.   We’d all vehemently deny that we engage in idol worship…but let’s stop and think about for a moment.   An IDOL is – Iconoclastic Ideology that causes Deception  Over Our  Lives.  An idol is something that attacks and opposes cherished beliefs and doctrines in a very misleading and crafty way…slowly and deceptively worming its way into our lives over time…until that idol has become firmly established on the throne of our heart.  We may say we’re not into idol worship…but who’s sitting on that throne today? The newest smart phone…an addiction…unforgiveness?  Anything can become an idol when it comes between and causes discord between God and you.
