Do You Worship God Half-heartedly?

“But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul”

Deuteronomy 4:29

Ponder This

The scourge of the twenty-first century is half‑hearted Christianity. Half-hearted Christianity will not do it. It never could. But surely not in these times.

Are you seeking for Christ with all your heart? James 1:8 says, "He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways." The word for double‑mindedliterally means "two souls." Here's a person trying to face both ways at the same time. Trying to live with one foot in the church and one in the world. They’ve got just enough of the world in them that they can't be happy in church and just enough Christ in them they can't be happy in the world. They’ve become a spiritual schizophrenic, a two-soul person. We are to love the Lord with all our heart.
