Read: Deuteronomy 4:15-24

15. ” Take careful heed to yourselves, for you saw no form when the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the midst of the fire,

16. “lest you act corruptly and make for yourselves a carved image in the form of any figure: the likeness of male or female,

17. “the likeness of any animal that [is] on the earth or the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the air,

18. “the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground or the likeness of any fish that [is] in the water beneath the earth.

19. “And [take heed,] lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and [when] you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them, which the LORD your God has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage.

20. “But the LORD has taken you and brought you out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be His people, an inheritance, as you are this day.

22. “But I must die in this land, I must not cross over the Jordan; but you shall cross over and possess that good land.

23. “Take heed to yourselves, lest you forget the covenant of the LORD your God which He made with you, and make for yourselves a carved image in the form of anything which the LORD your God has forbidden you.

24. “For the LORD your God [is] a consuming fire, a jealous God.

ANGLICAN COMMUNION DEVOTIONAL OUTLINE  FOR 17TH MAY 2021. 

After the fall, the mind of man became so corrupted that he turned to images as objects of worship (Rom. 1:21 – 23). In today’s text Moses was warning Israel not to make for themselves idols and images in the likeness of any object (vv. 23 -24). This is because God is a consuming fire (v.24, cf. Heb. 12:29).

In all the revelations of God, He had never appeared in form of an image, shape, animal, bird or creature of any kind. Yet man had always carved idols in form of created things and worshipped them. This is the highest level of the degeneration or depravity of man.
The church today is still battling with idolatry.

BILLY GRAHAM DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY MAY 2021

Many well- known members of the church advocate for cultural revival such as masquerade revival and other heathen practices, which indeed is revival of idol worship. This inclination to promote idolatry in our society has terrible consequences on individual families and the society at large (v.24, Rom. 1:21 32).

The church should discourage idol worship in all her operations and carry out serious advocacy against it. As Christians, we should also desist from anything that takes the place of God and time for His worship (a form of idolatry) in our lives.

PRAYER: Pray against all forms of idolatry in the church and more grace to worship God in Spirit and in truth.

The Anglican Communion is the fourth-largest Christian denomination. Founded in 1867 in London, England, the communion currently has 85 million members within the Church of England and other national and regional churches in full communion. {.…Read more...}
