Your Addiction, Your Idol

Colossians 3:5 says, "So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don't be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world." Did those last six words strike a chord with you? WORSHIPING THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD - Isn't that what we're doing when we choose our sinful behavior? We choose to stick close to our addiction and keep Jesus at arm's length.
