Summary: Idolatry, in any form, carries a very high price tag. That’s why we need to be aware of the futility of idolatry.
"The High Price Of Idolatry"
1 Kings 22:40; 51-53.
We were created to worship and serve God.
When we fail to worship Him in spirit and in truth, we fill that vacuum with something else.
We may not bow down to images of wood and stone, but we idolize many other things with the fervent devotion that is due God alone.
Work, family, money, pleasure, things, hobbies, recreation, whatever!

1. Idolatry ignores the presence of God in our lives.
2. Idolatry eliminates the power of God from working
in our lives.
3. Idolatry undermines the purposes of God from being
realized in our lives.
4. Idolatry opens us up to the judgment of God upon
That’s a very high price tag isn’t it?
Why not serve the Lord with faithful obedience and cling to Him?
We will only find that for which we are searching when we find Him.
