Joshua chapter fourteen tells us something very interesting about a man names Caleb. Three times the Holy Spirit says Caleb "wholly followed the Lord God" (vv. 8, 9, 14) Every ounce of Caleb was given to the Lord. This is the kind of heart you and I should have if we call ourselves Christians. The devil is going to intimidate a fainthearted man or woman, And there's only one way to stand against the devil. That is to give everything to Jesus Christ. Indeed, God does not accept half-hearted religion. It would be better for you to say that there is no God than for you to say that He doesn't mean that much to you; He doesn't make a difference in your life; He doesn't stir your heart to love Him.
Today, in the world we live in, our churches are full of half-hearted people. If the church were full of whole-hearted people, just think what the church would be capable of today. When Jesus Christ is preached from our pulpits, what a difference God could make in our lives. God is looking for wholeheartedness. "With my whole heart I have sought Thee." (Psalm 119:10) Can you say this to the Lord today?
