Game of Thrones- Week 5- The Kingdom of Comfort
We may not realize, but we are pitted in the midst of an unseen war for our soul. This covert battle is one that we cannot afford to lose. Idolatry is not just an ancient concern, but a real and present danger. In this series, Game of Thrones, we embrace the call to exchange counterfeit gods for the genuine article, to trade all challengers for the only one who has rightfully earned the right to take the throne of our lives. In the war for your soul, only one can wear the crown.

Everything hinges on the outcome of the war for your heart.
We find that in every area of sin that we struggle, underneath the surface is an idol laying claim to the throne of our heart.
“An idol is anything in my life that occupies a place that should be occupied by God alone. An idol is something that holds such a controlling position in my life that it moves and rouses and attracts me so easily that I give my time, attention, and money to it effortlessly.”
- Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones
Though the world around him sought comfort, Jesus challenged his followers to seek the cross.
What was an utterly shocking statement to Jesus' followers has become functionally meaningless to most of us today.
“Thus it begins; the cross is not the terrible end to an otherwise godfearing and happy life, but it meets us at the beginning of our communion with Christ. When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.”
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Who else but God could take a cross that represented defeat

and turn it into a symbol of victory?
Who else but God could take a cross that represented guilt

and turn it into the symbol for grace?
Who else but God could take a cross that represented condemnation 

and turn it into a symbol of freedom?
Who else but God could take a cross that represented pain and suffering
and turn it into symbol of healing and hope?
Who else but God could take a cross that represented death

and turn it into a symbol of life?
What God did on the cross, he can do for you!
It’s not that God used the cross in spite of its weakness – he chose the cross because of its weakness!
When we acknowledge our weakness and humble ourselves before the Lord we put ourselves in a position to receive His strength.
Will you, like Christ did before us, trust God enough to let your weakness be His strength?
