When we talk about idols we tend to assume a statue made of stone or metal. But Ezekiel, motivated by the Holy Spirit, told how God sees the idols we set up in our hearts and minds – things we worship and serve with our thoughts and imaginations. In Ezekiel 14, God has Ezekiel confront the men of Jerusalem who had set their own way of worship apart from Him, and then would come to God for answers to their trouble. They seemed to have no regard for their sins; their hearts were far from God. Sin is offensive to God, and because we are His people, He will correct our attitudes about it. Judgment from God is a direct result of sin. We humans don’t worry about sin as we should. When we fall into traps because of sin, we cry out to the LORD and ask for His help. The problem is, we have let our hearts and minds slip away from Him. We have not lived up to our commitment to serve the LORD. Should God answer us if we do not live for Him? This is the question God asks Ezekiel.
