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 (Matt 6:24). A man may do some service to two masters, but he can devote himself to the service of no more than one. We live IN the world, but we cannot live FOR the world. We make money and we have things…but we must not let them make or have us. We love God and (hopefully) want to please Him but we struggle because the ways of the world want us to conform. God requires the WHOLE heart, and will not share it with the world. He who holds to the world and loves it, must despise God; he who loves God, must give up the friendship of the world. God demands that we seek only to worship Him, and worship Him in spirit and in truth. The carnal mind of man is enmity against God, therefore, is not capable of such spiritual worship. Hence we must be born again. We must make a choice and we can’t be indifferent whether we serve God or not. We can’t straddle the fence! This is your INDIVIDUAL responsibility! This is my INDIVIDUAL responsibility. We can’t stand before God and say we just did whatever others did. We can’t serve God and follow the ‘way of the world’. Those that are bound for heaven, must be willing to swim against the stream; there is no blending in or running with the crowd, even if they go in the right direction; because God sees every – single – ONE – of – us… INDIVIDUALLY! We must not do as the most do, but as the best do. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve The Lord (Josh 24:15).
