Are You Worshipping The Works of Your Own Hands?

“Our God is in the heavens: He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.”
(Psalm 115:3-4)

——————–

Let me ask: if it be so very absurd to worship the work of other men’s hands, what must it be to worship the work of our own hands?

Perhaps, you may say, “God forbid that I should do so.” Nevertheless, let me tell you, that trust, confidence, reliance, and dependence, for salvation, are all acts and very solemn ones too, of divine worship: and upon whatsoever you depend, whether in whole or in part, for your acceptance with God, and for your justification in His sight, whatsoever you rely upon, and trust in, for the attainment of grace or glory; if it be anything short of God in Christ, you are an idolater to all intents and purposes.

  1. I have discovered, by grace, that the denominational church, the Bible and unspiritual prayer can each, or all, becomes idols. Having been stripped of my idols it is only now that I am aware of how reliant upon them I had become and the danger I was in. My attendance, my study and my self righteous prayers were a real danger.

    A broken and contrite man.
