Idols of the Heart: Learning to Long for God Alone
Have you ever seen a Buddhist temple or walked through a museum exhibit filled with statues of gods? We tend to think of idols as something outside us. They're something foreign, something we take pictures of in far-off temples of museums, something we wonder at.
But God's Word tells us that idolatry is something more than temples, incense, and food offerings. idolatry has to do with love—our love for God, our love for others, and our love for the world. When we look at idolatry in these ways, we understand that we're not so different from those people we observe in temples so far away.
Elyse Fitzpatrick helps us to examine the idols of our hearts and, ultimately, to pursue godly lives free from the habitual sins that trap us. When our affections are turned to Jesus Christ, he can once again reign in our hearts.
