Idolizing the Church

Good things can become idols too. That was my situation. That is my situation. For too long my idol has been the local church. More specifically, a large, happening, growing, well-known church. In my mind, I had an idealized picture of what the local church should be. My pursuit and thinking centered around those kind of churches. I was obsessed with being a part of one.

And then I was convicted. My idol was exposed. My dream was shattered. And that’s where I find myself today. The local church is beautiful and the means of sharing the gospel with the world. But it is not Jesus. And it dare not replace him in our lives.
