“Elijah came near to all the people and said, ‘How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.’ But the people did not answer him a word” (1 Kings 18:21).
Belief is never imposed but offered–an offer that is either taken or rejected. Elijah’s warning is that sitting on the fence is an unacceptable position. Those who would be the people of God must decide one way or the other. Where commitment and dedication is absent, opinions abound. Let there be no hesitation in our answers nor our actions.
