Elijah asked the people, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him."1 Kings 18:21 Those who consider themselves to be people of God must no longer waver back and forth. If the Lord is God, follow Him! It's time to choose sides and stand for the Truth. Those who consider themselves to be Christian must no longer be double-minded. Will we only be a Christian if it's popular to do so? Do we have enough depth in our faith not to give in to opposing forces?
"...the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind." James 1:6
Our faith must not be like the surf--or surface--of the sea which is tossed around by every wind that comes along. Our faith must have a stability and depth like the depths of the sea itself. My prayer for God's people is the same prayer Jesus prayed for Peter--that their faith may not fail. Jesus added--"and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers." Luke 22:32
People of God, let us worship, serve and walk with our God with an unwavering and determined faith. Let us strengthen one another, encouraging each other to do the same.
