Death by Options

We’re all familiar with the story of Elijah’s fire from heaven in the showdown with the prophets of Baal. But I’d like to point out the instigation of the confrontation.

Israel wanted to worship the Lord but also wanted to worship Baal. Elijah thought this was pretty dumb, so he asks, “How long halt ye between two opinions?”

I’d like to ask that question of us, How long halt ye between two opinions?

The double-minded man is unstable. One day he’s going good, the next day who knows where he’s off to. James’ advice is that the double-minded man purify himself, let go of sin, knock it off. Let all who name the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Half-hearted Christianity is of no value. We are to be men of one thing, as the apostle Paul was. Make up your mind already or else quit playing the game. No man can serve two masters.

Love the Lord your God with ALL your heart, soul and mind. Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts. Come to Christ, once for all, be made new, rise up to newness of life and live the no longer I but Christ life that ensues.
