Did you know that at one point in history there were two popes? It happened in 1378 and is a sordid story of political drama that makes today's politics look like a sitcom. The point: Who's spiritual authority to you put your trust in when there are two popes? Go back a little further in history and you'll see that the prophet Isaiah realized he had two kings (see Isaiah 6:1-8). There was the king of Judah, Uzziah, whom Isaiah trusted for protection and prosperity and then there was the Sovereign King of the Universe, the Lord God Almighty. The point: Until we force our lesser king to abdicate the throne we cannot trust, serve and devote ourselves to the King of kings.
Who or what's your king?
1. Pray - Ask God to help you follow Jesus
2. Study - Read a chapter in a Gospel listening to what the Spirit is teaching you.
3. Share - with a friend or group what you learned and how your walk with Jesus is going.
Keep Pressing On,
