Internal Idols

Read Acts 17:1 through 19:41

While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was of full of idols (Acts 17:16).

Paul even noticed an altar created to worship an “unknown god.” When Paul saw this, he seized the opportunity to reason with the philosophers of Athens. He suggested that the God who had made the universe and everything in it was actually this “unknown” God. He urged them not to think of this God as just another image created by man.

Society worships idols of many kinds. They may not be the traditional wooden totem poles or man-made images formed out of gold, but idols are all around.

Anything elevated above God is an idol. Entertainment, sports, and shopping are harmless pursuits. Yet, when elevated above God, they become idols. Careers and financial pursuits, when raised above God, may also become idols. Christians must be careful where they invest their time, effort and finances.

Nothing should ever be elevated above Jesus!

Challenge for Today: Tear down the idols in your life.

Quicklook: Acts 17:16–29
