Advent Conspiracy Devotional: Monday, November 29th

Scripture: Hebrews 1:6
And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.”
Reflection:  I think when we examine our lives and how we spend our time, we might realize that we idolize a lot of things that don’t deserve our worship: people, things, lifestyles.  And make no mistake, when we idolize something, making it an object of worship is exactly what we are doing – it is the very meaning of the word. 
            So as we begin to think about ‘worshipping fully’ this Advent and Christmas season, I think it is critical to begin with finding something or someone worthy of our worship.  When Jesus was born, angels sang heavenly anthems of praise to God, celestial fireworks were set off and ancient prophecies were fulfilled. 
            Beginning with his divine conception and his unique and celebrated birth to his miraculous healings and world altering teaching, Jesus every moment was a model of perfection and truly deserving of our praise. 
            Simply put, God is the only thing worthy of our worship and Jesus Christ is the tangible, visible connection to the God who deserves our worship.
Question: Who or what do you worship?
What idols do you have in your life?
