Choose this day

Choose this day…

I guess I am just a crap or get off the pot kind of guy (never thought you would hear that in a ministry blog huh?), I agree with the Prophet Elijah:

1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

I think the people answered him “not a word” because they didn’t like their lifestyle being challenged. They were comfortable where they were stuck between two Gods, two ethos, two lives. It is not my job as a man of God to allow people to remain comfortable, it is my job to pull you kicking and screaming if I have to toward God.

The question we face today is the question we as a people have faced for centuries. Who will you serve? And will you do it will all of you being?

“stuck between two gods” That is a powerful comment. I dont think many of us know that we are actually “stuck between two gods”. For the last 7 or 8 years I have been in a struggle with my beleifs but not willing to explore them, at least not to allow Jesus to help me explore them. It was easier to just stand back and question faith. About a month ago, my 17 year old son began having a serious spiritual battle, to the point of depression for him. (yes he is a much better person than I am.) But God is so good that through “my sons” spiritual battle, I had to face some serious doubts and beleifs of my own. Drawing me back into the arms of God and renewing my faith in Christ. We had many many talks, read lots of scripture and prayed continuously. It never ceases to amaze me to actually see God at work in our lives.
