“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.” (Matthew 6:24).
He does not say ye cannot very well serve God and mammon, but ye cannot serve two masters at all. Neither can you serve them at the same time? You will never be able to love them equally for there will come the time when there will be some bias and there is where lies the danger.
Ye shall be sure to end by serving one. The man who thinks he is serving God a little is deceived; he is not serving God. God will not have his service. God wants your whole heart, soul and body which is a reasonable service unto Him. The choice is clear and make no mistake if you are not going to be 100 per cent consider your time.
The devil will monopolize him before he gets through. A divided heart loses both worlds. Saul tried it. Balaam tried it. Judas tried it, and they all made a desperate failure. Mary had but one choice. you are trying it without any success and through this message God is warning you to take stock of your life and chose this day whom you are going to serve.
Paul said: “This one thing I do.” “For me to live is Christ.” Of such a life God says: “Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore, will I deliver him.
I will set him on high because he hath known My name.” God takes peculiar pride in showing His love to the heart that wholly chooses Him. Heaven and earth will fade away before its trust can be disappointed. Have we chosen Him only and given Him all our heart? If you haven’t done so yet, I urge you this day to make that choice and chose wisely. There you are before a door, are you going to enter or stay outside and allow the door to shut. In the days of Noah, they had the choice and it was rejected because many thought Noah was a crazy man. Not so today my friends, brothers and sisters.
