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.
