“Elijah approached all the people and said, ‘How long are you going to be paralyzed by indecision? If the Lord is the true God, then follow him, but if Baal is, follow him!’ But the people did not say a word.”
1 Kings 18.21
The people of Israel desired to have both God and Baal. Elijah brought them to a point of decision. They must choose. The Lord would not allow them not to choose.
Do I want both God and some desire of mine which has become my idol? Am I suspended wanting both to serve God and to serve sin? No one can serve two masters.
