Pastor’s Corner

By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp

Family Life Christian Center

Some people have made a decision to live a dual life.  We read about them in 2 Kings 17:9, where it says – “the Israelites secretly did things against the Lord their God that were not right.”  They tried to live in obedience to God, but when they thought He wasn’t looking, they did their own thing, following their own desires.

We are no different from them.  We go to church and act religious around our friends.  Away from that environment, we slip into a different lifestyle.  Do we really think that we will get away with it?

In 1 Corinthians 4:5 we are told, “the Lord will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts.”  There will come a time when everything that has been hidden, whether good or bad, will be exposed and revealed.

No one has to live that way.  Simply choose to do what is right in God’s eyes.  Why is it that we tend toward doing wrong so often?  It is because temptation and sin are fun.  God acknowledges that in Hebrews 11:25.

The Apostle Paul tells us in Titus 2:12 to just say no to sin.  Choose the life that God gives.  Learn to walk in obedience to God’s Holy Word, the Bible.  Trust in the Lord, He loves you and wants what is best for you!
