In 1 John 5:21, we learn that it is necessary for you to keep yourself from idols. This raises two fundamental questions:
1. How do you recognize an idol? That question was answered in the audio link posted yesterday in “American Idol: Food?!?” Part 1
- 2. How do you resist idolatry? That question is answered in another message posted here. If food has become your idol, there is real help here.
Tomorrow, I will be posting a message that outlines 3 Steps to Personal Change. It is not enough to restrain a bad habit. You have to learn how to reinforce that restraint and replace that habit. The Bible lays out this exciting pattern for personal change and I will discuss this in that upcoming post. In the meantime, listen to this message from James chapter 1.
