My recent sermon series drove me to deep thought and introspection! Especially when I found that Jesus spoke to His disciples about “THINGS” as often as He did the Pharisees. What an eyeopener!!! I wrestled with why would Jesus speak so directly to His followers about “THINGS”? Then it hit me! Even Christians tend to seek out or make idols of the things of the world. I John 2:17 came to mind, And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Conformity to this world will always be a threat to living for Jesus! Jesus, John and Paul all got it right! “THINGS” are a problem for believers and unbelievers! Think abiut it! Yes, my heart and yours are idol factories! Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Think on these things!
