MATTHEW 6:24_No man can serve two masters…
Who do you listen to when you need to make a decision? Who has the final say? Who is ultimately in control? Whose lead will you follow when two voices call? Who is the master of your heart?
Without a final authority chaos is just around the corner.
From childhood, to youth, to adulthood, to old age, you serve many masters. On a sports team there is generally more than one coach. In a theatrical production there is more than one instructor. But, ultimately there has to be one who is the head – one who demands total allegiance. One the team pledges their obedience and respect to.
Jesus teaches you cannot serve two masters. A decision must be made, in the heart.
The Bible offers some advice. Deuteronomy 6:5 (KJV), “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” I Corinthians 10:21 (KJV),“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.”
At the end of the day, it’s a decision you alone must make.
Only True God, Help me pledge my allegiance to You alone. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ wants my allegiance—I will give it to Him!
