The God of Jacob

Today in church we saw how, in our sinful nature, we  are determined to set up idols we can worship. (See Genesis 29, about Jacob, Rachel, and Leah.)

We worship relationships, money, football, careers, hobbies, our kids, ourselves, possessions... And sometimes most of the time, we don't even realize we are doing it! Worshiping something just comes so naturally because God created us to passionately worship Him.

But unfortunately - as if God wasn't enough - before we know it we are skipping time with God so we can watch our favorite TV show, if you will. The Holy Spirit opened my eyes this morning to an idol in my life, and it was a good chance to listen to him and repent.

Thankful for a God who cares enough to make me clean. The God of Jacob...
