TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY
TOPIC:          HALTING BETWEEN TWO OPINIONS
TEXT:            1 Kings 18:21-40.

You are welcome to our Tuesday Bible Study. It has always been wonderful every time we gathered to study God’s word.

Today’s topic is very important. The situation in the lives of many people today is similar to that of the children of Israel as seen in out text. There are those who in their confusion have mixed the worship of God with idols or worldliness. Such people have a divided heart. They fear God and yet serve their gods. (See 2Kings 17:33)

Such people are doomed unless they turn to God in genuine repentance and forsake their evil ways.

1.       THE DANGER OF A DIVIDED HEART.
            Hosea 10:1-2; Isaiah. 44:20; Gen. 49:4; James. 1:6-8
There is so much danger for a divided heart. A divided heart is also a deceived heart. It is also an unstable and wavering heart. Such a heart has no perfect grip on God. He will therefore not enjoy good things from God. Infact, apart from the problems he would have in this world, he also faces the problem of an eternal loss. Such a man’s religion is vain and has no bearing.

2.       REASONS FOR THE LIFE OF INDECISION
            John 12:42; John. 9:22; Hosea. 10:12.
There are a lot of reasons why people cannot firmly stand for God in true worship. Below are some of them:

  1. The fear of man. Prov. 29:25
  2. Not wanting to be called a fanatic.
  3. Because of position in society.
  4. Because of the love of pleasure more than the love of God.
  5. Not ready to face suffering for Christ.

But none of these or any other reason is strong enough to move you out from a decisive walk with Christ.

3.         A CALL TO A DECISIVE WALK WITH GOD
            1King 18:20-21; Joshua. 23:1-3, 14; 24:124, 14-16.

Our God is a good God and his ways are upright. He therefore wants his children to serve him in uprightness and in truth. You cannot serve two masters. Make up your mind this year to be stable and serve God with singleness of heart. You must also know that there is no other God that can help you. Give total and wholesome service to God. Your benefits will not be numbered.
