“We all have that “forever empty space” deep down here.”
Louis C.K. (Comedian)
The basic definition of idolatry is filling that “forever empty space” with anything besides God. We all do it, all the time. As the 18th century pastor and hymn writer Robert Robertson writes, “Prone to wander, Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love, here’s my heart, O, take and seal it; seal it for thy courts above.” (“Come Thou Font”). At the core idolatry is about misplaced worship and misplaced affections. Where do we find our sense of self-worth, meaning and purpose? Where do we turn for comfort, joy, happiness? If we can answer any of these questions with anything besides our Lord, then we have erected a potential idol in our hearts. Join us for our February Sermon series as we seek to understand the Biblical concept of idolatry, identify our own idols, and learn how to root them out of our hearts.
The Gospel of Mark is a fast-pace book. Full of action and to-the-point teaching. Join the ICF family as we journey through the book of Mark this Lenten season. We will find answers to questions such as Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus Come? What does it mean for me? Following the worship service there will be an opportunity for discussion and Q+A with the pastor. If you are interested please email Pastor Carsten (email@example.com)
