“An Idol of the Heart is anything that rules me other than God.” (Paul Tripp)
Idols of the heart never deliver what they promise. That thing you are sneaking behind your spouse’s back, that burning desire to have everyone think highly of you, the house you so desperately try and keep perfect at the expense of your family…
None of these will bring the life that can only come from having no other gods before the one true God.
Our God is a jealous God, in pursuit of you today. He longs to have you close to His heart. He loves you enough to answer you in keeping with your idols. He will do what it takes to capture all of you.
God loves you too much to leave you divided between two masters.
Psalm 86:11 “Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.”
