Week Two-gods of pleasure
Week two in the gods at war Bible study. This week it is about the gods of pleasure and mainly focused on one man's story about his obsession for food. Food is one thing that "if it makes you feel good, do it". Where do you go for comfort? What is the first response that you have when you need to feel comforted? Is it God or something else and then God? Is God your last resort? God has so much more to offer us than the temporary gods of pleasure.
A man in our Bible study made a comment that I thought was brilliant and very true. "God would rather be the fix not the temporary solution".
Too often we think of God as being there for us just in case we need him. We always need him and He wants to be the solution to all of our problems, not just the difficult times.
