Are we indifferent to God?
Isaiah 45:22 “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”
In the world, there are many gods.
But for the one who is truly born again, there is no other God, but the Triune God.
God, the Father.
God, the Son.
God, the Holy Ghost.
They are three persons in One.
God the Father formulated our Salvation.
God the Son purchased by HIs redeeming blood, our Salvation.
God the Holy Ghost works that Salvation within us; day by day, moment by moment.
Indifference in religion is the worst of attitudes. (Indifference means a lack of decision, for either for or against something.)
Really?! How can this be for a Christian?
We should either be, “all in”; Or “all out”.
When I was younger, many preachers used to mention the proverbial “fence-setters”.
As a true Christian, you really can not be on that fence. You must choose which side you will walk on.
Joshua 24: 14-15 “Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whither the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
You see, everyone will serve a god:
Either the true God.
Or a god of their own making. (Which includes themselves…making themselves a god of their life.)
We are not in charge. There are circumstances which come up we are not prepared for.
There are people who have an effect on us, for good and evil, come into our lives.
There is the “bug” that bites: greed, success, and power.
And there is the emotional roll-a-coaster of the choices we make.
As Christians, we should gladly submit ourselves to God.
He has saved, and in a real sense, saves us everyday; as we yield to His Holy Spirit, within.
We should give up the attitude of the world to our God:
Psalms 14:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”
In the original Hebrew, it means that they say, “No, God.” For they work very hard to say that there is no God, and as they work, they seem to more and more believe it.
We can not afford to be hesitant about our life with God.
We must stand with someone.
We will come with the zealous attitude of following after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Or, in indifference, we will take on the attitude of the world, and lose our greatest strength.
Where do we stand?
Are we indifferent to our God?
