NO ONE CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS . . . You cannot split your faithful devotion

Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.” But the people said nothing. “
(Reference: 1 Kings 18:21 )

What I find interesting, beloved, is that people said nothing. They did not defend themselves, respond to the charges, or state which way their beliefs lead them. They said . . . nothing. Such indecision has never been popular with God. The Lord has been known spit lukewarm-ness out of the Divine mouth. You are with God, or not with God. There is no “some of this” and “some of that.” This historic Anabaptist profiled this day wrote a letter to his two brothers pleading with them to come to faith. Joost Verkindert said he has embraced faith in God and worries for “those who have not obeyed the Gospel of our dear Lord Jesus Christ, who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power.”

One of the things that modern Anabaptists/Mennonites strongly state is that one’s faith be lived out not just on Sundays and days of religious observation, but all days of the week and under all circumstances. You can not pick and choose when you want to be a Christian and when you slid by on a weaker morality and belief ethic.

May you beloved stick with your choice and honor that choice daily, Selah!
