Gotta Choose Somebody
by Bishop Keith A. Butler
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
In this verse from the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus is still talking about the need to take heed, to do the right thing for the right reasons. Your eye is either clear or diseased. You can’t serve both God and satan. In other words, many people want to have one foot in the world and one in foot in God’s way. They want to have a church mentality while they’re in church and the world’s mentality outside of the church.
At some point in your life, however, you will be required to make a decision. You will have to declare that there is a right path. You may say, “If I do the right thing, there is going to be a cost to me. I may get hurt doing this. I may lose something doing this,” but that’s just the way life is. You have to take a longer view and know that your heavenly Father will make things right in the end.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank you for planting the desire in my heart to love and serve you. I declare that my house and I will serve you all the days of our lives, trusting you to be true to your Word. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
