The Golden Calf (Exodus 32:1-6)

Jason Roddy, May 11, 2014
Part of the Exposition of Exodus series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

This evening's message recounts the shocking event of the Israelites sudden fall from their faith in God by committing the sin of idolatry. Turning to worship an idol fashioned into the shape of calf made from the very gold which was given to them by God for the use of building a temple!

The account is a lesson to us today. We may try justify our actions, but breaking what God’s commands is rebellion against Him, and those who harden their hearts will be held accountable.

God is not to be worshiped with idols, images, or worldly desires because it draws attention to the work of our hands instead of the God who made all things. Worship to God alone is the only way to express our faithfulness to Him; no created idol can ever represent the perfection of the Lord.
