Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional 7 October 2019 – OPPOSITES
And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
1 John 3:22
Recommended Reading: Hebrews 13:21
Life is full of opposites: night and day, black and white, up and down, truth and lies. In our spiritual life, we have a choice to make: We can pursue those things that are pleasing to God or pursue their opposites—things that are not pleasing to God. The choice of our pursuits is ours to make (Philippians 4:8).
The apostle John made it clear in his first letter that we can’t have it both ways. “If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth” (1 John 1:6). We cannot serve God and the world at the same time (Matthew 6:24). The closer we move in the direction of the world and its values, the farther away from God we find ourselves. Therefore, we must live on the right side of the “opposites continuum.” We must make choices that please God, choices that move us ever closer to Him. With every step we take toward the world, our testimony for Christ is compromised.
Today, be aware of your choices. Choose God over the things of this world. Walk in a manner well-pleasing to Him.
Of two evils, choose neither.
Charles H. Spurgeon
