DO NOT SUFFER A BLOW (Do not sit on the fence)
I was visiting a doctor friend at work when I saw a young lady with a fully swollen mouth. My friend said to me that she has a broken jaw. That was even worse. How did she get it? She got in between two people exchanging blows in a bar.
First, there is no in-between in the things of the kingdom.
You are either good or bad:
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
II Corinthians 5:10 NKJV
You are either hot or cold:
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”
Revelation 3:15-16 NKJV
Lukewarmness is not welcome in this kingdom.
You are either righteous or unrighteous.
“All unrighteousness is sin…”
I John 5:17 NKJV
You are either serving God or serving Mammon:
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Matthew 6:24 NKJV
You must make up your mind early whether you want to be fully committed to God or you want to be a borrowed vessel in the hands of the devil. Do not sit on the fence.
In the game of sports, you rarely see a fan of a football club support another club. It is not permitted in sports. It is not permitted in the kingdom also.
A lot of times, believers cannot live with conviction because they want to live a life of convenience.
Jonathan loved David but he did not want to leave his father, he did not reign with David as he prophecied. He died in battle alongside his father. There is no neutrality. Choose your ground.
In the battle, there is no middle ground. The one who stays in the middle without choosing a side lacks defence and is the worst hit.
Like Moses asked, let me ask you also: “Who is on the Lord’s side?” Friend, there is no neutral ground.
