Be Careful the god You Choose

You have heard the cliche, "You are what you eat."

But what do you think about, "You are what you worship"?

Listen to Psalm 115:

Our God is in heaven;
he who does whatever pleases him.
But their idols are silver and gold, made by hands of men...
Those who make them will be like them,
and so will all who trust in them. (vv3-4,8)


The Living God can't be controlled.
False gods can only do what we tell them to do.

Worshiping false gods will lead to our becoming like them.
Worshiping The Living God will lead to our becoming like Him.
(Romans 8:29 tells us God desires for us to be conformed to the likeness of his Son)

We talked about it yesterday. What is shaping you?

We can be shaped by the All-knowing, All-seeing, All-loving, All-powerful, Life-Giving God.


We can become like the mute, dumb, deaf, blind, unresponsive gods of of this world.

Who do you want to become like?

Be careful which gods (or God) you choose.

Grace & peace
