Anatomy of an Idol
Isaiah 1:1-4, 2:8
An “idol” is anything more important
to you than God, anything that
absorbs your heart and imagination
more than God, anything you seek to
give you what only God can give.
Anatomy of an Idol
Isaiah 1:1-4
Idols in our Lives:
Anything I LOVE more than God
Anything I TRUST more than God
Anything I SERVE more than God
Anatomy of an Idol
Isaiah 1:1-4
#1 – Do not replace God with another
god “no other gods before Me”
#2 - Do not reduce God into another image “not
make an idol in the form of anything…”
