Under Gods Command

Judges 18:18-21 When these men went into Micah’s house and took the carved image, the ephod, the other household gods and the cast idol, the priest said to them, “What are you doing?” They answered him, “Be quiet! Don’t say a word.  Come with us, and be our father and priest.  Isn’t it better that you serve a tribe and clan in Israel as priest rather than just one man’s household? Then the priest was glad.  He took the ephod, the other household gods and the carved image and went along with the people.  Putting their little children, their livestock and their possessions in front of them, they turned away and left. 

 Through this entire incident, no one desired to worship God; instead, they wanted to use God for selfish gain.  Today some people go to church to feel better, be accepted, relieve guilt, and gain business contacts or friends.

Lets Bring it Home: Beware of following God for selfish gain rather than selfless service.
