American Idols

Jeremiah 2:28

Idols Are Created
The gods that you made for yourself

The mind of man “is a perpetual factory of idols” - John Calvin

What is an idol?

  • Physical idols
  • Idols of the heart & mind

For as many as your cities are your gods, O Judah

A “cafeteria Christ” or a “designer Jesus”?

Idols Are Challenged
your time of trouble

Idols are challenged to give:

  • Meaning to life
  • Transcendent truth
  • Absolute morality

Idols Are Crushed
Where are the gods …?

Let them arise, if they can save you

  • Meaning
  • Truth
  • Morality


Little children, keep yourselves from idols—1 John 5:21

Turning Away from God Is Really Stupid

Jeremiah 2:1-13

People do stupid things

Turning Away from Love
I remember the devotion of your youth, your love as a bride

Song of Solomon 8:7 If a man offered for love al the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.

God’s great love for us

Turning Away from Perfection

What wrong did your fathers find in me?

Being with the Lord and doing things His way is always best by far

They went far from me, and went after worthlessness, and became worthless

They had put God:

  • Out of their memory
  • Out of their lifestyle
  • Out of their religion

Turning Away from the Best Life

They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters

  • Clean water
  • Cool water
  • Constant water

And hewn out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water

Do the smart thing: Go with God!

Me, Lord?

Jeremiah 1:4-10

Your purpose in life

The Call
God made him:
I formed you in the womb

God knew him: I knew you

God set him apart: I consecrated you

God guided him:  I appointed you as a prophet to the nations


The Confirmation

Devotion: Lord God

Hesitation: I don’t know how to speak, for I am only a youth

The Lord’s confirmation

The Commission
I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms

Tearing down & building up

God has prepared you for His call, and will enable you in His call

Sharing Christ

Matthew 9:35-38

“I’m not in management, I’m in ____________”

There Is Good News
teaching ...and proclaiming the gospel

There Is Glaring Need
he had compassion for them

because they were harassed and helpless

like sheep without a shepherd

There Is Great Negligence

The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few

  • Not “technique based evangelism”
  • Not hypocritical
  • Not for our own glory

Ways we can share Christ
