Our trust and confidence should be in no earthly created thing, only in the one who has made it all.
Evaluate our lives to see if there are things that hold our confidence other than God. Also, be ready to extend love, prayer, and proclamation of the good news when others idols fail.
Revelation 9:20-21 “The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
1. What ways do you see people experiencing “torment” when idols of this earth are judged?
2. Is there anyone in your life right now that seems to be in “torment”? How could you engage them in love? Take time to pray for them that they will not become more hardened and deceived.
3. Can you identify any thing of the world that you put your confidence in other than the living God and His Son Jesus?
