Turn From Vain Things

Scripture
“Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. Acts 14:15

Observation
Paul healed a man that was lame and this miracle was seen as an act of a god and not man, so the people began to worship Paul and Barnabas. Paul used the opportunity to turn their focus to the one living God, who made heaven and earth.

Application
The good news Paul and Barnabas shared is the good news we share today. There is a living God, Creator of all things who calls you into a relationship. Turn from the vain things that will never satisfy and seek to worship Him.

Prayer
Lord, may we not pursue or give importance to the vain things in life but seek you in worship and yield only to your leadership in our lives.
