Faltering Between Two Opinions
Indecision cripples us. When you are conflicted, half wanting to go
one way while also desiring to go the other, you hamper progress in any
positive way. Elijah implored his contemporaries to make up their minds! On
We are often faced with similar decisions. We cannot serve God and mammon (Matthew ). We must choose the world and its pleasures, or we must serve Christ — we cannot do both! We will either give our lives up in Christ’s cause, gathering a harvest of souls for Him, or scattering abroad (Matthew ). Indecision cripples many Christians, too. They flounder around trying to live a worldly life, but at the same time a spiritual life, and failing in their attempt to do either. They have too much religion to live a full-bore debauched life, but too little religion to live a dedicated, faithful life for Christ and His church. They remain in the ‘twilight zone” between two competing worlds, and uncommitted to either. It is a self-defeating dichotomy of the mind! Christian, are you there? It is time to ‘cross the Rubicon” and to commit yourself wholly to a no-holds-barred, no-turning-back commitment to Christ. Nothing else will do! “A double-minded man is unstable in all of his ways” (James 1:8)! So, quit faltering, and start living!
