“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Matthew 6:24
When we read this scripture we usually only think about God vs. Money, however this scripture goes deeper than this. If you’re a Christian you probably professed Jesus as your Lord, the Biblical meaning of Lord is Master. Is Jesus really your Master?
Its easy to admire and adore Jesus for his wisdom and sacrifice, even most Muslims would acknowledge his greatness. However do you serve Jesus as your Master? Are you devoted to Christ or are you more devoted to your hobbies or career?
In the Bible, most of Jesus apostles called themselves a “BondServant” or “Bondslave”. This was a Jewish term of someone who willingly made themselves a slave to a master. Are you a Bondservant to Jesus Christ? Have you surrendered your own desires to fulfill Gods will?
Often when we talk like this , people go running for this hills. Because it requires discipline and sacrifice. People often want Jesus to fit into their schedules rather than changing your schedule for Jesus. As Jesus says in this scripture we cant serve two masters. There is only one master truly in your life, question is who or what is it?
Becoming a Bondservant for Christ is not easy and the transformation usually doesn’t happen overnight. However it’s a status we should aspire to become and ponder our daily lives as to who are we really serving on a daily basis? Surrender yourself to Christ in Jesus Name Amen!
