Make Up Your Mind
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. Matthew 6:24
Dont fool yourself; dont think you will receive anything from the Lord being double-minded. I dont know you. You know yourself. You know whether you believe this word or not. However, whether you believe or not does not change the infallibility of the word of God. The word of God is immoveable; unchangeable and unbreakable. Nothing can be done to the word. Heaven and earth may pass away, but no word of God will return unfulfilled. So it is not about the word of God, it is about you.
The word of God is like a seed. You know quite well that no matter how good the seed is, if it is not planted on the right soil, try all you can, it will not grow. The same thing with the word of God; if your heart is not receptive to the word of God, irrespective of the number of prayer lines you stand on, the word will still not work. But that will not be your portion in Jesus name.
In the scripture we read today, it shows you cannot serve two masters. It is not possible. Are you already in the kingdom of God but functioning and operating in the devils kingdom? Check yourself; yes you have accepted the Lord as your personal Lord and Saviour, but the way you carry on is not in agreement with the kingdom principles. It is clear you cannot serve two masters. You cannot straddle the fence one leg in the church but one leg in the world. You want the blessings of God but you also want to be identified with the Jones. No it does not work. That was why Jesus said to the church in Laodecia you are neither hot nor cold. Look at the verdict of Jesus, because you are neither hot nor cold, I will spue you out of My mouth.
Can you imagine? You can give it a try attempt to drink lukewarm tea. For most people with low tolerance level, they immediately feel like throwing up. Why? It is simply because you cannot place it place it if it is hot then you can
accommodate it and if cold, you know it is cold from the moment you pick the cup. But when it is neither hold nor cold you really dont know what to do with it. It is just nauseating and not desired by anyone. May that not be your portion? Make up your mind to serve God and the blessings will follow you in Jesus name.
