This is what our Future Holds

I think we’re in good hands.

We have world changing students at Apostolic Christian Academy, Maryville, TN — Recently, in their Bible class they were asked to write an essay concerning idols in Paul’s day, compared to idols in 2020. Here is one response from an anointed young lady who lives a godly life:

“In the Bible days the people’s idols were shrines, golden images, and gods made out of stone. Today our idols could be our cell phones, tv shows, movies, music, sports, social media, or anything else we put before God. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the moment that we never think about the future. We can get so stirred up in worldly things that we never think about God.

God has called us to be a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and peculiar people!

We can’t let the things of this world overtake our lives. We need to stop worrying about how many followers we have, why he or she doesn’t like me, how many likes I have, and why I can’t play sorts like they can; we need to focus on what God has in store for our life and how we can fulfill the calling he’s placed upon us.

An idol is like an unhealthy food or drink, if you are constantly eating and drinking unhealthy things you are not going to be a very healthy person. When we constantly have idols in our lives it will develop an unhealthy relationship with God. It’s okay to have social media (if you use it in a good way), play sports or watch tv but it does not need to be all we’re concerned about.

Our relationship with God is the most important thing in our life. The Bible says that this world is not our home, we are just passing through. We need to live a life pleasing and acceptable unto the Lord and heading in the right direction. With idols in our way we won’t make it; Our focus needs to be on the path set before us, which is heaven.”
