Topic: A Disciple Of Christ [December 24, 2016]
“…How long shall ye between two opinions? If the Lord shall be God, follow him…” (I Kings 18:21).
A disciple is simply a follower of Christ. To follow means to walk after and obey the principles of the person being followed. In the above scripture, Elijah was telling the people that they needed to choose whom to follow between God and Baal as they could not follow both at the same time. The same way, you cannot follow God and something else at the same time. You must choose whom to follow. If God, then God; there is no sitting on the fence.
You cannot say you follow Christ and the mark of the devil is still in your life. You still do things you did when you were in the world; you still tell lies, steal, bear false witness, having unforgiving spirit, fornicate, commit adultery, etc. Those are all marks of the devil and if they are seen in your life, then your Christianity is questionable and the fullness of God’s blessings will not be seen in your life.
If God is your choice, then serve him in spirit and in truth. You must be disciplined. You must say no to the things of the world and uphold Christ at all times. God detests unfaithful believers. Let your yea be yea and your nay be nay.
