Turn away from these worthless things
and turn to the living God.
Paul urged his Lystra listeners to turn from idolatrous worship and turn to the living God, who “made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them” (Acts 14:15).
Here is the psalmist’s description of lifeless idols: “They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but they cannot see; they have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but they cannot smell; they have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but they cannot walk” (Ps 115:3–7).
Isaiah poked a stick in the spokes of those who set their human-made god on a pedestal: “And there it stands. From that spot it cannot move. Though one cries out to it, it does not answer” (Is 46:3–7).
Your life is committed to the living God or consumed by a lifeless god. Does it speak? Does it see? Does it hear? Does it answer?
The living God and lifeless gods campaign for
your commitment. You have the only vote.
