Psalm 84:10 ” Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.”

The Writer of this Psalm had made a well thought out choice…a choice that had eternal consequences attached to it.  I choose Godliness over godlessness, righteousness over lawlessness, and selflessness over selfishness.  But too many Christians today want it both ways.  It’s called being double-minded or lukewarm Christianity…of embracing equally the ways of God and the ways of the world.  But we can’t have it both ways, for  II Timothy 3:1-5 warns us, “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power.”  We can no longer get away with just having the “appearance” of being a Christian…choices need to be made.
