    What is idolatry? (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    Idolatry is trusting in created things rather than the Creator for our hope and happiness, significance and security.

    Meditate

    Romans 1:21, 25 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened…They exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator.

    Since no one can keep the law, what is its purpose?  (Kidz Memory in Blue)

    That we may know the holy nature and will of God, and the sinful nature and disobedience of our hearts; and thus our need of a Savior. The law also teaches and exhorts us to live a life worthy of our Savior.

    Meditate
