Offense Against Idolatry

"This is how we go on the offense against idolatry. We tell everything that competes for our trust, fear, and affections that Jesus is greater. When we don't feel that He is greater in our hearts, we flee from the idols and ask God to show us the surpassing beauty of His Son. And then one day, this battle with idolatry will be over and done: 'But we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is' (1 John 3:2)."
