“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
We really can’t serve two masters, it comes down to one or the other! It’s the LORD or ” ______,” fill in the blank! It could be money, health, career or even family! If you make comments like, “I’ll get into ministry when I finish or achieve ” _____.” Again fill in the blank! Then you may be serving other gods!
“And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Just like Joshua, the LORD is asking the same thing: who you gonna serve?
“And Elijah came to all the people, and said, How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him. But the people answered him not a word.”
1 Kings 18:21
Today, let’s give the LORD an answer and follow Him, walking and talking about His ways.
“Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.”
Today, take some time and search your heart and see what might be in the way of serving the LORD! Then get out there and serve Him, you’ll have a blessed day doing it!
