Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 1 Corinthians 10:14-16
What is idolatry? In the dictionary it mean the worship of idols, extreme admiration, love , or reverence for something or someone. We have a lot of idolatry in our society today ranging from people’s obsession with celebrities to people worshiping man-made objects. As Jesus said where your treasure is your heart is also. What is your heart set on?
Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf. 1 Corinthians 10:17
Satan wants to divide, but through Jesus were are all one. Though separate, together we make up the body of Christ. Idolatry separates us, it makes your heart go astray from your life source. The blind lead the blind into the ditch.
Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar? Do I mean then that food sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. 1 Corinthians 10:18-20
There is only one true God, the same God of Israel is the same God that rose Jesus Christ from the dead. Any other worship or idolatry is Satanic. Do all you do to the Glory of God and no one or nothing else.
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons. 1 Corinthians 10:18-21
Pastor John Hagee says being a Christian is like being pregnant, you either are or you not. That pretty much sums it up, there is no such thing as a part time Christian. You are either serving The Lord or your serving something else.
Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he? 1 Corinthians 10:22
Our God is a jealous God, he is your creator and Heavenly Father and wants you to be part of his Kingdom. Imagine your own child rejecting you and knowing there life will be headed to ruin and chaos.
Set your eyes on God not of this world, don’t obsess over senseless pleasures because they will only lead you off the narrow path to eternal life in Jesus Name Amen
