Jesus is King and King alone!

Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on April 27, 2010

Even in my old life, I had grown so accustomed to my sin that I had given up, saying to myself, ‘this is just who I am.’ Though I had resigned myself to such bondage, I still foolishly thought I could perform my way to God’s approval and acceptance. What I did not know is that I had very effectively given my heart to two masters…and that leads to insanity. What I was doing was nothing less than giving my mind to two opposing powers, the result being my very mind and identity were being ripped to shreds. On one side was homosexual temptation calling my name. On the other was the Lord calling my name. I had become double-minded…and a double-minded man is unstable in ALL his ways. My remedy? I had to fire one of the masters. Having at least a mustard seed’s worth of wisdom left in me, I CHOSE to follow Jesus and began cutting off the Enemy. Choosing to follow one Master led me to peace of mind…led me to healing…led me to freedom…led me to hope…led me to intimacy…led me to worship…led me to right relationships…led me to joy. 

Are there any other masters you are serving today besides the Lord? Allow the Holy Spirit the freedom to search your heart and mind and reveal any area of conflict…and then repent! 

"No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” Matthew 6:24 NASB 

A double minded man (is) unstable in all his ways. James 1:8 KJV
