ARE YOU ON THE LORD’S SIDE?
MAIN TEXT: Exodus 32:26
“Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, who is on the LORD’S side? Let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.”
1 Kings 18:30: And Elijah said unto all the people, come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.
Humans usually tend to choose a side. Sometimes we do it subconsciously. We have preferred football teams, car types, even when two people are in a debate on TV we tend to just support one debater against the other. During election, we vote for one candidate and reject the other, it’s all about choice. In life, it is dangerous to sit on the fence, you must take a side. There are only two camps .There are two sides to all the moral questions in the world.
What does this mean? Being on the lord’s side means a decided renunciation of sin; it means believing God always, it means a cheerful obedience to His command and giving Him honor and glory always. So any activity, any attitude, ambition, character that does not give God the glory means you are on the other side. Being on the lord’s side has a lot of advantages. It is the most honorable side, it is a happy side, it is the safe side.
Joshua asked the Israelites in Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. On the other side of the flood is death, calamity, is agony, brethren are you on the Lord’s side?
THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A STRONG TOWER, THE RIGHTEOUS RUN INTO IT AND THEY ARE SAFE
