Before anything else I would like everybody to know that I haven’t seen a single episode of “Game of Thrones.” And I don’t think I’ll watch a single episode. Please don’t judge me, I still love you. Anyway, this blog post is not about the series, it’s about your heart and who rules, dictates, and calls the shot.
Who sits on the throne of your heart?
There are a lot of gods who wants to sit on that throne. Some of you may not be aware of it, but some you already know who sits on that throne. In fact, you already have decided.
So, who sits on the throne of your heart?
Idolatry is a serious offense against God. Idolatry is anything you put before God; it is the first thing you think of the moment you wake up and the last before resigning to bed; it consumes your emotion and takes up your time. Bad news is that we create our own idols everyday.
we create idols of relationship
idols of career
idols of academics
idols of ministry
for some it is this awesome person you admire. *hint, hint, nudge, nudge*
Your idols will demand a sacrifice. As long as you worship your idols it will demand more than what you can give — it will demand your life. The difference between God and your counterfeit gods is this, the one true living God will give you life and life to the full; the counterfeit gods will suck the life out of you and eventually destroy you.
We all have a choice; we can decide who sits on the throne – the God who gives life or the god who destroys life.
