If you half heartedly obey the Lord your God and occasionally follow some of his commands, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.
Sometimes I feel like this is what we read. We pick and choose what we like about God’s Word, but still expect God to follow through on his promises. There’s a word for this. It’s called double-minded. Lukewarm. Worldly.
I wonder if we even realize how much we cheat ourselves out of by being half hearted believers. It’s compromise after compromise. Lie after lie. It isn’t the world I’m talking about, it’s us! It’s the church. It’s believers who think a litle bit of the world is “ok”.
Long to be real. Long to be authentic. Long to be better than ok! Long to be used by God. Rock the boat!
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that they hated me first.” -Jesus
