We continue our series, The Ten Commandments, by looking at the second commandment, "You shall have no other gods before Me." You might think, "I'm too smart to fall for that kind of trick. No golden calves for me!" But, I'm afraid we are often guilty of worshiping other types of idols.

The first commandment is, "You shall have no other gods before Me."  The temptation is to say, "I've got this one down, I don't pray to evil spirits.  I love Jesus."  If that is your response, then you've missed the intent of this commandment.

When Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to worship Nebuchadnezzar, they knew they would be facing the fire. It wasn't a figure of speech, but an actual furnace in which they were to be burned alive. Christians must endure big problems in life, and from this story we can learn what we should remember when we are in the fire.

Satan wants you to be known not for who you are but for what you do and what you have done.  He wants your sin and your past to define you.  God wants you to see yourself as He sees you--to give you a brand new name.

Have you ever been given useless driving directions like, "Turn left four streets before the dead end." or "If you see Walmart you've gone to far."?  It is maddening to be lost and helpless.  When you are lost on the road or when you have lost your way spiritually, what you really need is clear directions that tell you HOW to find your way home.

Paul wrote the book of Philippians from prison as a letter to the struggling and discouraged church.  Paul could have written, "Hey Guys, I know things are tough.  Just do the best you can."  Instead, Paul dramatically raised the bar - for them and for us.  The entire letter is filled with instructions and commands that are almost breathtaking in their challenge.

These days, the phrase "I'll be praying" and all of its variations is as common among Christians as the question "How are you?" when we encounter someone we know in passing. Praying for others should not be simply something we say; it should be something we do. When we say, "I'm praying for you", what should we pray? How should we pray? For the answer to that we look at the first eleven verses of the book of Philippians.

One thing you can expect in life is the unexpected. No matter how carefully you plan your future, things change. Good, bad, or devastating; life is full of unexpected twists and turns. Unfortunately, some people expect that following God will result in a life without struggle, trouble, heartache or problems; and they become disillusioned and mad at God when things don't go as they expect. If that is you, perhaps God hasn't let you down, but instead, perhaps what you were expecting wasn't what He promised.

Often, it happens without warning.  It wasn't your fault.  You couldn't avoid it.  But, suddenly, you find yourself in a storm.  It feels like it will never end - that there is no way out.  In life we must experience storms, but the story of Noah teaches us how we can survive life's biggest storms and emerge stronger that before.
