The Lord’s message rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia—your faith in God has become known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say anything about it, for they themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God,and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.1 Thessalonians 1:8-10 (NIV)
Let’s turn to the true God from idols to serve God. This is what repentance is to turn to God from our idols to serve God. Remember repentance is not a one time event, we are to continue growing in our repentance which means we are to continually identify idols in our lives and turn from them. Pastor Gregory gives us keys on how to identify idols that we set up in our heart.
