We are still looking at “keep yourselves from idols”, and we have already seen that idol worship is not limited to bowing down to a tree or object but that anything that replaces God in our lives becomes an idol.

Today I want us to look at one thing that has become an idol in this generation: PLEASURE. Pleasure was created by God. God is the God of all pleasure who wants His creation to revel in pleasure.

Psalms 16:11
“You will show me the path of life: in your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

God is not against pleasure. But Satan has succeeded in getting mankind hooked on pleasure to the neglect of God. But know that any kind of pleasure that is not sanctioned and overseen by God will lead to perversion. Today, many of the things that give man pleasure are sinful. We call it the passing pleasures of sin. The Bible makes it clear that in this End Time people are going to love pleasure more than God. Check this out.

2 Timothy 3:4
“Traitors, rebellious, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;”

From the verse one, he was talking about certain kinds of people who will fill the earth at the End Time. Lovers of pleasure more than God abounds. Do yourself a little test. Ask yourself honest questions. Do you enjoy sinful pleasure? Can you miss your favourite TV show for a church meeting? How do you desire to spend your leisure time?

I hope these questions will give you a clue as to whether you are worshiping the idol called pleasure. Blessings.
