Seek The Truth

by Giselle Aguiar, Award-Winning, Christian Author

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," and "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 14:2; 3:16-17)

What do you worship?

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Religion vs Christianity

How many idols do you have?

An athlete? A performer? A car? Success?

Our God is jealous God. He wants us to worship him only. Where are your priorities? If God isn’t first in your life, then you’re not focused on Him and His will for your life.

If you put your career first, then what happens when you lose your job? Do you lose your identity? No. You are who you are and you are a child of God and He loves you. You should love Him back equally.

If you put your relationships first, what happens when that person is gone or betrays you? God will never do that. He’s with you 24/7.

If you worship idols like saints, statues – anything manmade, you risk losing that. For all we see is temporary. Everything manmade will end. Only God is eternal. His love endures forever!

I remember when I was in Italy touring the cathedrals, there was a statue of a saint (can’t remember which one), the statue’s foot was literally smoothed into a nub off from millions of people rubbing the foot for a blessing.

In Naples, there’s a saint that is worshiped constantly in hoped that he’ll protect the city from Vesuvius. Read: So Many gods

I don’t think God Himself could have been any clearer when He said:

“You shall have no other gods before me.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.”
~Exodus 20:3-6

Even the cross you wear around you neck is an idol if you don’t have Jesus in your heart. It means nothing otherwise.

You may say that you believe in God and that you know that Jesus was His Son and that with the Holy Spirit comprises the Triune God (Holy Trinity), but do you truly have Jesus in your heart?
