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