Idol Lies, Part 5

Air Date January 31, 2013


How is Jesus setting you free from “Idol Lies”? On this Midday Connection we continue our series with Dee Brestin and look at our cheating hearts. Jeremiah paints God’s bride as a restless wife to whom the bonds and burdens of true love were slavery, and the lure of the forbidden irresistible. We’ll look at this difficult part of our story as we face the truth about our deepest desires on this Midday Connection.

Download some reflection questions from today's discussion.

On January 3rd, we introduced a Bible reading initiative. You can go back and listen to the program for more information. You can also visit the Scripture Union website for information about a Bible reading tool.
