Amaziah picked and chose when and where he would obey God. If it served his purpose and was beneficial, he would listen to Godly counsel, but if he thought he knew better, he’d either turn a blind eye or refuse to listen at all. When a Believer’s heart and conscience aren’t completely devoted to God…and when they want their own way…Revelation 3:16 calls them lukewarm Christians. We can’t play games with God, feigning an undivided commitment to Him, when in reality, we have no real desire to do so. We may think we’re fooling God…but we’re only fooling ourselves. And for our fellow Believers around us, we may think we’re pulling the wool over their eyes…but they can see the inconsistencies, lack of accountability, and refusal to take responsibility for our sins…so in the end the only person being fooled is us.
