Serving Only One God

Image result for serving two masters

A well educated man told me once that he had read the Bible, the Koran and all the religious books about other Gods and thought it was perfectly fine to serve them all.  Let me tell you that you cannot serve more than one master.  Matthew 6:24 from the King James Version of the Bible tells me: No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.  This tells me clearly that you must choose who you will serve.  I know that God is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5).  He is your creator and he deserves all your honor and praise.  Exodus 34:14 says, “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.”

Anyone that has clearly read the Bible should realize that the only way to Heaven is clearly through the son of God, which is Jesus Christ.  Romans 1:16 says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  That means anyone of any race or national orgin can be saved, if they believe on Jesus Christ.

One might ask why believe in Christ?  I have written post on this before and I will post links to read more about it, but to tell you in simple terms, Christ died on a cross for the sins of the whole world (John 3:16). Jesus is not dead but he arose from the dead and now sits on the right side of the Father (God).  Romans 8:34 says, “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Many have heard on Jesus all over the world.  He was born in Bethlehem, a Palestinian town south of Jerusalem.  He lived a perfect life, without sin.  The Israelites knew that a Messiah was coming but many rejected him at that time.  They crucified him by killing him and hanging him on a cross.  But, He arose the third day. God arose him from the dead.  One might ask why did he die.  John 3:16 says, “ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Jesus became our high priest. We no longer go to a Priest to ask for forgiveness but can come boldly to the throne of God through our prayers.  Hebrews 4:14 says, “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.”  So when we pray, our Lord Jesus intercedes on our behalf.  Therefore if we serve anyone other than Jesus, than he will not intercede for us, because he is our high priest.  He is God’s beloved son.  2 Peter 1:17 says, “For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”   He was without sin and therefore he is perfect. Hebrews 7:27 says, “Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”

Therefore Jesus is the only way to Heaven.  Ye must accept Jesus as your Savior, ask him for forgiveness and he will create in you a new creature.  You will be born into his family above.  I didn’t say you would go to Heaven as soon as you accept him, because as a Christian, God wants us to serve him.  He wants us to tell others about Jesus.  Start with your family, friends and keep his commandments. The only way to know his complete will is to read his holy word.  Ask God for wisdom and direction.   – https://godlywitnesses.wordpress.com/2014/12/23/ye-must-be-born-again/
