Bible Marginalia- HOW LONG?

Bible Marginalia Series-#44


Our recent visit to Israel
 and we were at Mt. Carmel this past week.
Looking at the area where this story
 takes place between
Elijah and the prophets of Baal.

He had recently confronted Ahab,
 the leader of Israel.
Aha did not fear and love the LORD.
 He did as he pleased
 and he held other things
 as more important 
than his relationship with the Lord.
He had allowed the silent infiltration 
of the pagan culture to become his life focus.
Such conviction here for our modern-day
 slip down the slippery slope.

How long? 
 Will you continue to live 
with a foot in both worlds?
Limping along living.
The 2 different opinions 
of what is of utmost importance
 in how we live our lives.

It is simple.
If the LORD is God- 
But, if Baal, then follow him.

Either or.

Give us strength, OH LORD,
to follow YOU.
