No Man Can Serve Two Masters

“Mark Anthony yoked two lions to his chariot; but there are two lions no man has ever yoked together— the lion of the tribe of Judah, and the lion of the pit. These can never go together. Two opinions you may hold in politics, perhaps, but then you will be despised by everyone, unless you are of one opinion or the other, and act as an independent man. But two opinions in the matter of soul-religion you cannot hold. If God be God, serve him, and do it thoroughly; but if this world is God, serve it, and make no profession of religion. If you are a worldling, and think the things of the world are the best, serve them; devote yourself to them, do not be kept back by conscience; ignore your conscience, and run into sin. But remember, if the Lord is your God, you cannot have Baal too; you must have one thing or the other. “No man can serve two masters.” If God is served, he will be a master; and if the devil be served, he will not be long before he will be a master; and “you cannot serve two masters.” Oh! Be wise, and do not think that the two can be mingled together.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
