Nothing Can Rival God For Your Heart

Cookie A Day

3 Then Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, “If you are returning to the Lord with all your heart, then remove the foreign gods and the Ashtaroth from among you, and direct your hearts to the Lord and serve Him alone; and He will save you from the hand of the Philistines.”

-1 Samuel 7:3, NASB 2020

To be right with the Lord Jesus Christ is a matter of peeling oneself from false gods. These false gods can come in a variety of ways. Living for money is one way to have a false god. Another way to have a false god would be through worshiping a real idol by attending a false religion or end up idolizing yourself, becoming your own god.

Anything that would rival God for your heart is unacceptable to the Lord. You have to be committed all the way or not at all. He will not accept halfhearted worship.
