On the Fifth Sunday in Lent, Reverend Sean Ewing preaches on the contemporary idol of materialism. The passage of Scripture used this morning was from 2 Kings 6:8-23.
We continue in our sermon series on contemporary idols by looking at the idol of sex. While our culture would seek to misdirect our desires when it comes to sex, our faith promises so much more.
In this sermon, we consider the contemporary idol of money. Jesus’ sacrifice for you, God’s love for you in Christ, the forgiveness of your sins, his presence with you, the salvation that has been offered to you – those things confer onto you a security and a status money can never give to you.
An idol is anything in our lives that occupies the place that should be occupied by God alone. In a world increasingly shaped by globalism, consumerism has done that in many of our lives. Our sermon series on Contemporary Idols continues with the Idol of Consumerism.
