Who's the Boss

“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money."  Matthew 6:24

Who are you serving today?

Is it God?  Or, is it money?

I've had to ask myself that question lately, taking a very hard look in the mirror.  There have been times I have failed to show courage and have disobeyed God by considering how my obedience to Him will impact my pocketbook.  It is at these times, if I am honest and believe the verse above, that I have despised my Jesus as I consider my fat paycheck and all the worldly luxuries it provides for me.

It is very uncomfortable to admit this, but I bring it to light because as Christians we must hold each other accountable.

Will you hold me accountable?

Let's take this a step further, and look to our churches and pastors.  Is your pastor sold out for the cause of Christ?  Does he courageously share the truth of Jesus Christ regardless of the consequence?  Or, does he walk a tightrope of political correctness, careful not to overturn the money changers' tables.  If so, you need to find a new congregation, my friend.

I have been blessed to grow up with a father who lived the sold-out life.  Oh, he struggled, as we all do.  But, his heart's desire has been to please his Jesus, the real Boss.  His life has been lived in utter obscurity to the masses, but to people like Laurel Darby and many others he's taken the time to share Jesus with, he is anything but obscure.  I am grateful for the example.

That's what it's all about, isn't it?

In light of the pandemic, I am compelled to share truth and expose the greed of the many involved in controlling a world by fear in order to enrich themselves.  Just follow the money.

If you have the courage, please share.  And while you're sharing this, share what's most important--a personal relationship with Jesus.


Goodnight, Runners.
