Brothas and Sistas, Why Are You Still On the Fence?
|Posted on 28 August, 2015 at 0:02|
"How long are you going to sit on the fence?" I Kings 18:21
"Choose ye this day whom you will serve, as for me and my house we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24:15
Good morning Brothas and Sistas,
Believe it or not most of us are not as committed to the Savior as what we desire or claim to be. Many of us live our lives on the fence because we are afraid of completely living for Jesus. Some of us allow ourselves to name the name of Jesus but only when it is convenient. There are times when quite a few of us simply go through life with no real connection or witness with and for the one that we say we belong to.
Some of us are so double minded at times because we act as though we don't know which way to go with this thing. I have a few questions for you today. Have YOU truly made up our mind to serve Him and make Him LORD of your life? How long are YOU going to remain on the fence? You either love Him and want to serve or you don't. How long are YOU going to play this game?
I like the challenge that Elijah gave to the people when he summoned everyone to Mount Carmel, in particularly the prophets. Elijah had been sent by God to get the people to repent from turning away from the one true and living God and going their own way by worshiping false gods. Elijah challenged the people: "How long are you going to sit on the fence? If God is the real God, follow Him: if it is Baal, follow him, Make up your minds." and scripture goes on to say, "Nobody said a word; nobody made a move." I Kings 18:21
I love this word. What a challenge! Elijah sends out a call to the people to stop compromising, perpetrating, and to stop serving their other gods! He tells them to stop playing it safe. Elijah knew that they had seen by personal experience, by His witness, by His miraculous moves who the one true and living God really was and is. So he confronts them with their double mindedness by saying, "Has my honesty, my face to face confrontation and accountability of your sin made you speechless? " He continues on by saying, "Make up your minds today and stop frontin' about who you are going to serve! Get off the fence!"
Brothas and Sistas, here is my challenge to you today. If God be God then please serve Him with your entire being! Children of the Most High God, we can no longer compromise this thing called Christianity. How long are you going to sit on the fence? Please stop doing double duty today. "Choose ye this day whom you will serve, as for me and my house we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15! Praise Him!
