Choose Your Side
You are listening to the sermon from 7/17/16
Faith Wesleyan Church in Rockford IL.

Scripture texts: Exodus 32:26; Ephesians 4:1-3; Matthew 12:30; Joshua 24:15; Joshua 24:18b

Synopsis: How is it that we have come to the place in this country where we hate people with whom we have political, religious and lifestyle differences? We’ve become a nation of enemies instead of a nation of citizens. Polarization is the new normal. There is only one side you can choose and be sure you’re on the right side. And that’s the Lord’s side. In Exodus, Moses asks the timeless question, Who is on the Lord’s side? When we are on God’s side, we agree with Him, not the other way around. The Golden Calf episode tells us where the Lord’s side begins. It begins with a whole heart and soul worship of Him and a rejection of false gods and idols. Being on the Lord’s side means to be obedient to Him. Being on the Lord’s side means a rejection of immorality. To be on the Lord’s side means we love others. If we find ourselves on the side of hate and immorality, we are not on the Lord’s side.
