Are There Two Yous?

                Matthew 21:28-31 says, “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’ He answered and said, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went. Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said to Him, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you.”

            Thank God, that because of His grace and mercy, it is never too late to come to salvation. But after salvation, we are to no longer live a life of indecision. The Lord takes the seat of authority in our life and we are to live a life of obedience. No longer are we to have ‘two yous’. We are not to be a certain ‘you’ in church and an entirely different ‘you’ out in the world. Jesus is to be Lord of all. There is only to be one ‘you’ and when people see that one ‘you’, they are to see the reflection of Jesus.

            The following Scriptures are given as warnings to us. Revelation 3:16 says, “So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” Matthew 5:37 says, “But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.” Ephesians 4:14 says, “That we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine.” James 1:6-8 says, “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

            Look in the spiritual mirror. Do you still see two ‘yous’? If so, the one ‘you’, which is the ‘old man’, still needs to be crucified at the cross of Jesus. It is never too late for His mercy and grace!
