2022 THEME: For Such a Time. . .
Series: Against the Grain
Scripture: Daniel 3
The devil temps us to (destroy us); God tests us to (develop our faith).
I. THE CHALLENGE OF IDOLATRY
Nebuchadnezzar’s statue was 90 ft. high and 9 ft. wide. What do we see? The king (was charmed) by his dream (ch.2) but was not (changed) by it. (Strong convictions) often come short of (sound conversions).
The orders? (Bow or else). Idolatry-> worshiping something a human has made instead of worshiping the God who made the humans. [Turn to Romans 1:21-23, 25]
II. THE COURAGE OF CONVICTION
“We are what we worship.” Worship is our response to (what we value most).
Q: How do I know where and what I worship?
A: Follow the trail of your (time), (affection), (energy), (money), and (loyalty).
