Who Is Your God? - January 14, 2006

"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." Matthew 6:24

Have you ever been in a predicament where you had to make a choice between doing the right thing and doing the popular or accepted thing? Sometimes it is easy to chose what we know God would want us to select, yet other times, we may wrestle between flesh and spirit.

For example, a hostile driver runs us off the road and shouts obscenities at us. While your immediate reaction might be to curse right back at him, or to vindictively issue him the same aggression he bestowed upon you, this initial reaction is not how God would have us behave. The secular world may tell us its okay to return jab for jab, hate for hate, and violence for violence, but as the above Bible verse reveals, if we have made a decision to serve God, then we must honor this choice always, not only at times when it is convenient or easy for us. If we drift in and out between the two; the ways of God, and the ways of man, then whom do we serve?

Like a loving spouse, Christ requires our faithfulness, not just on Sundays or holy days, or when we know someone is watching.

If you are a Christian who is trying to please both God and man, won't you consider recommitting your life to your first Love, Christ?

If you have never made this commitment, what better day to take a firm stand than today?
