This verse screamed out to me as I was reading. God is speaking to the Israelites. Each time He delivered them they would follow for a short time then leave and follow “strange” gods. The lure of the world was more appealing than obedience to God.
God will be saying this to us soon, not to America, but to Christians. How long can we straddle the fence? How long can we follow the world and the things of the world? What are some of the “strange” gods we are following? Most of us do not want to be “different” so we will wear clothing that is not very modest. We don’t want people to think we are “goody two shoes” so we will watch things that do not bring any glory to God. We jump right in and listen to songs or jokes that have very “colorful” language. God does not call it “colorful” but sin.
Make a choice – The true and living God or the god of this world.
Have a blessed day,
