The Choice is Yours

Read Psalm 115. Here is a great Psalm with some powerful consequences about praise contrasted with idolatry. First the Psalmist comments on the serious trouble with idolatry. Primarily we become like the very thing, material or immaterial, we worship, v.8. Those idols are so powerful and subtle but they can’t even grunt, v.7. Wonder why we have passive Christians? Could it be that they have an idol problem that has left them idle?However, the Psalmist makes a break when realizing the powerful and loud declaration of God’s blessing and protection.  16 The heavens are the Lord’s heavens,    but the earth he has given to the children of man.17 The dead do not praise the Lord,    nor do any who go down into silence.18 But we will bless the Lord    from this time forth and forevermore.Praise the Lord
