2023-03-19 Sermon – How to Break the Power of Idols

In 1 John chapter 4, John urges us test the spirits. Not everyone speaks by the Spirit of God. In this sermon, we explore ways in which we can develop this discernment in our lives. John also says that if we belong to God, we have already won a victory, because the Spirit within us is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. As we deny ourselves to follow Christ, the journey itself may be bland and tasteless at first, but we can persevere if we keep in mind the joy of eternal fellowship with Christ set before us. This perseverance will ultimately break the power of the idols in our lives and free us to create a space of worship and fellowship with each other and with God.
