Wasted Opportunities (Part 2)
Bible Text: 1 Kings 12:15-33 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: 1 Kings, Wasted Opportunities
1. Jereboam did not believe God’s promise to him in I Kings 11:37,38 and it led to fear for his kingdom and his life.
2. When there is fear in our lives it is an indication of something we do not believe about God.
3. Fear led to greater sin for Jereboam in that he set up alternative worship for the people of Israel to keep them from going to Jerusalem to worship God in the way He prescribed. This led to idolatry among the people of God.
4. When we worship God our worship must be acceptable to Him. Unacceptable worship is:
-to just go through the motions
-to treat God as a good luck charm
-to worship without obedience to His revelation in His Word
-to worship the wrong things, such as material objects, possessions, wealth.
