“You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4 NLT)
Hello, family, this is part two of “A Slave?” If you are just joining us please read “A Slave?” part 1, then come back and read this part. Family, there is no middle ground in this universe. We are going to follow the world’s standards or God’s! If I can say it like this, we will either be slaves to this world or slaves to God!
Being a slave to the world may look more fun but it really is not, the end for the world is not a good one. Being a slave to Christ is a different story! Yes, we give up complete control of our life and give it to God but who better to give it to than the creator of the universe! The end is so much better!
“But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15 NLT) There is no middle ground family, either you are with God or this world! You will be a slave to one or the other!
I can’t close this devotion without extending an opportunity for anyone of you to give your life to Christ! You may have been searching for fulfillment. You tried this and that only to be hungry for more! In Christ, you will find your fulfillment. He will fill that void in your heart! Give your life over to him, let him take the wheel! This walk with Christ won’t be easy, but it will be worth it! It is better than gaining the whole world only leave this life and burn in hell.
Change who you serve today “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9 NIV) It’s not about a big elaborate prayer it’s about a heart change! It’s about you saying “Christ I surrender to you!” and believing it! Make Christ your master today!
Much Love & God Bless
