Sometimes I wonder how much we Christians hold onto the world and how little we hold on to Christ. We seem to sit on the fence and try to have one foot on either side. Elijah told the Israelites "How long will you go limping between two different opinions? I the LORD is God, follow Him but if Baal, then follow him."
How can we follow God if we are continually holding on to the world? We can't, and Elijah said it's better if you are fully in the world than if you are continually putting one foot on the worlds side, then one foot on Christianity's side.
Think on that for a moment, and how scary that thought is. Do you really want to sit on the fence?
