Maintain Your Present Lane (Part 2) Not Properly Aligned
If you’ve been following Courageous Christian Father, you know that I have been working on a series called Road Signs of the Bible. I had another one that I was going to do it I’m just now starting on that and that is about maintaining your present Lane. In a prior one I talked about going too fast. This one I want to talk about not being properly aligned. We know if your vehicle is not properly aligned it will sway or pull one way or the other. That pulling can make it harder for you to maintain the present lane you are driving in.
The same applies when were not properly aligned with Christ. We cannot serve two masters. Will either pull one way to one more than or pull one way more to the other. That’s why staying in the Word, reading the Bible, Praying, Worship, Fellowship and such with Christ is important to be properly aligned. When we are with Christ we won’t pull more toward the world. Both the Gospel of Matthew and Luke tell us the same thing as seen in their verses below.
Matthew 6:24“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
When we pull toward the world we are taking our eyes off of Christ. We say that we value the world more. We are pulling toward the World. When we are pulling toward the world and living in the world, we are pulling toward hell.
But Christ will pull us in the right way. He will pull us toward righteousness with the Father. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. (See John 14:6.) We are also told that there is no other name that can save us. (See Acts 4:12.)
