Summary: No man can serve two masters.

  Study Tools

THE IMPOSSIBLE TASK

(Matthew 6:24) No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (KJV)

I. THE DECLARATION

“No man can serve two masters.”

A. MANY PEOPLE HAVE TRIED…

“God and mammon”

1. They have sought to serve God and money.

2. They have sought to serve God and material things.

B. BUT THIS PASSAGE REMAINS TRUE.

“No man can serve two masters.”

II. THE DEMAND

A. GOD DEMANDS OUR SUPREME LOVE.

“He will hate the one, and love the other.”

(Deuteronomy 6:5) And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. (KJV)

(Mark 12:30) And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. (KJV)

(Luke 10:27) And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. (KJV)

1. It must be a sincere love.

2. It must be a strong love.

B. GOD DEMANDS OUR SUPREME LOYALTY.

“He will hold to the one, and despise the other.”

1. In pleasures as well as in pain

2. In prosperity as well as in poverty

III. THE DECISION

A. THIS DECISION IS PERSONAL.

“Choose you this day whom ye will serve.”

B. THE DECISION IS PARAMOUNT.

B. THE DECISION MUST NOT BE PUT OFF.

Jos 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.

(KJV)
