Vital Step to a Radiant Faith-Remove Idols

March 16th, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year to Shine, today’s Vital Step to a Radiant Faith is to Remove Idols.

An idol is anything that takes priority over God in our lives. An idol that stands in the way of our worship is a hindrance to our view of the living God, who made us. Removing that idol opens the way for us to replace false worship with true worship.

In Ezekiel’s day, the LORD said to the people of Israel, “Repent! Turn from your idols and renounce all your detestable practices.”

In Acts 19:18, we see how revival can sweep across a city when people confess their sins and remove their idols. In Ephesus, the name of Jesus was held in high honor. Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed what they had done. A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly….In this way, the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.

Removing idols from our lives is a vital step to a radiant faith that makes a difference in our world.
