Lord of All Or Not at All

I think we all know people who are "all in" when it comes to Jesus and there are those who proclaim they do not believe. And then there are those who are in the middle, sitting on the fence. That doesn't work. It's like this, "Lord of all or not at all!"

If you are not for Jesus, then you are against Him. If you are not actively working for Him, then you are working against Him. It sounds harsh but this is Biblical. There is no middle ground. Jesus wants our hearts devoted to Him. Luke 11: 23, "Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters." Today is the day to make a decision.

In our world today, it is popular to sit on the fence and be non-committal. Jesus tells a parable to reveal the danger of the person who sits on the fence. Luke 11: 24-26, "When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first." If you are sitting on the fence and not fully committed to Jesus, then you are against Him and your condition is worse than the first.

"It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped."

Your messages seem to be following what is happening in my life. LOL! A couple of months ago, I had to make a really tough decision. I am at peace and happy with following my faith and beliefs in God. The beauty part of it all, it was perfect timing, because something even more wonderful came in its place. God is good all the time. All the time, God is good!
