I have a psycho kitty... I'm serious. My pet cat, Murphy, is not the most
intelligent creature God ever created. See Murphy likes to play with my
sister's hair bows. He knocks them around, chases them, rolls around, and
just has a joyful ole' time hitting that little cloth covered rubber band
around. Occasionally, Murph will knock that hair bow under the couch where
it's lost forever, but he doesn't accept that. Instead Murphy backs up
and runs with all his might right into the couch, trying to get his paw
underneath it. And then he does it again... You can hear the scuffling of
his feet SHH SHH SHH SHH and Thunk! as he nails the couch. All he wants is
to play with that little hair bow one more time, even though he knows he'll
get hurt if he keeps trying to get it.
Well, we Christians kind of do the same thing. We know that we are "born
again" and that God has separated us from our sins, but we still like to
dabble with sin and play with it despite the fact that it hurts! So we
continue to hit a wall in our relationship with Jesus simply to touch that
sin one more time. Yet all we're doing is hurting ourselves.
Sin always leads to death! Whether it be death in relationships, goals, or
even physical death it always leads to death! We don't have time to play
games with Jesus. Today is the day to serve Jesus; to come back if we're
straying, and to get ourselves back on God's perfect track. Who are you
serving today? Jesus alone, or are you dabbling with the devil too?
Jesus said, "No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and
love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other."
