Deadly American Idol

1 Corinthians 10:12

If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall.

~New Living Translation

Contentment in Christ is one thing. Complacency in our Christian walk is quite another.

In the 2018 United States, I believe one of our deadliest yet underexposed idols is the idol of comfort. We worship at the altar of comfort, convenience, and ease. And it anesthetizes our once vibrant relationship with Jesus. We think we’re in and all is ok, then wonder why we fall.

If you’re not growing in Christ daily, coming closer to Him, then my concern for you is that you’re being lulled to sleep. Thinking you’re all good, with no real need for ongoing training, can be the most dangerous place of all to live.

Moment by moment, the Christian life is lived by faith only, without any human guarantee.
