“No man can serve two Masters”. Jesus spoke these words over 2000 years ago and they are just as true today. God has called His people out of this present darkness into His marvelous light, yet Christians are strangely attracted to the dark. So much so that it has become acceptable to keep one foot in the church and one foot in the world. Churches everywhere are offering up their own brand of Christianity, one that looks nearly identical to the world that we have been called out of. Would this brand of Christianity even be recognizable to the founders of the church? 

I found an old sermon written by the prince of preachers, C.H.Spurgeon that says it better than I ever could. Here is a short excerpt:

If God would save a man, He must fetch him out from the world—no man can remain part and parcel of an ungodly world and yet be God’s elect one, for this is the Lord’s own words to the enemy at the gates of Eden—“I will put enmity between you and the woman, between your seed and her seed.” Did He not also say to Pharaoh, “I will put a division between My people and your people?” The Lord will sooner burn all Sodom down than Lot shall continue to be associated with its crimes and dragged down by its evil spirit.   source

Please do not allow the enemy to deceive you: you cannot serve two Masters. You will love only one of them, and it may surprise you to learn which one you are the most attracted to.
