Idols are things people worship instead of God. It’s easy to look at a statue and think it’s silly to worship such things. But look at Matthew 4:8-10. Satan tempted Jesus with riches and power. Those are still pretty tempting to idols today. What was Jesus’ answer in verse 10? That’s exactly what your answer…
When Jesus died on the cross, He opened the throne room of heaven to us. That means you can step right into the presence of God – anytime, anywhere. And you can talk to Him about anything. Just take a look at Hebrews 4:16. God wants to hear from you!
Because we all sin, we all owe a debt to God. It’s a debt so huge that we can never pay it on our own. That’s why God sent Jesus – to pay that debt for us. Read Colossians 1:14 and 1 Peter 1:18-19. How did Jesus redeem us?
God knows you will make mistakes. That’s why He sent Jesus, the only perfect person. Check out Romans 5:8 and Luke 19:10. It’s never too late to ask God for a second chance.
