Use this space to take your general notes during the message.
This week we kick off a brand new series that we are calling "Knockoff
gods". It's a series about who or what sits in the place of worship in our
lives, about who/what our "God" is, really.
Read Exodus 20:3-5 (NIV). We often think that idols are obvious and hard
to miss. However, in today's culture, idols are often quite subtle. In today's
society, what are we worshiping? In other words, where is our devotion and
what are we prioritizing?
Pastor Jonathan went through the list of the most common idols (aka "knockoff gods") in our lives. Check out the list below. Do any of these
things resonate with you? Why do you think that they have such a hold on
your life?
◦ Money
◦ Job/Career
◦ Name, position, power
◦ Comfort, convenience, pleasures
◦ Acceptance, approval of others
The truth is that worshiping Jesus influences ALL of these things in the list
above- and more! Have you seen evidence of this influence? In what ways
have you seen the ripple effect that following Jesus has in our lives?
Read Matthew 16:24 (NIV). What does Jesus mean when He says that
followers must "take up their cross and follow me"? How does it feel to
read this statement?
Read Matthew 28:19 (NIV). Take a few moments and pray to our Heavenly
Father. Ask Him to reveal the areas in your own life that you need to allow
Him authority over.
