There is No Third

Who are you?  Who-who, who-who?

Psalm 1 describes two kinds of people.  Which are you?

Option #1 – The first is the person who delights in God’s Word.  If you studied the life of this kind of person, you would be struck by his or her ongoing meditation on Scripture.

Option #2  – The alternative is the person who keeps company with people who have no regard for Christ or his word.  This person hangs out with Beevis. 

You might answer, “Well, I’m not sure that I fit either category.  I have this kind of third option going – – I’m a hybrid – – I’m not really sold out about God’s Word, but then I don’t think I’m Beevis’ sidekick either.  I’m option #3.”

Here’s the thing.  Read Psalm 1.  Read Matthew 7:13-29There is no third

There are two kinds of people.  Those who delight in God’s Word and those who don’t.

There are two roads: a broad road and a  narrow one.  

There are two kinds of houses: those built on the sandy land, and those built on the Rock.

There are two kinds of trees: those that bear fruit and those that don’t. 

There are two eternal destinies, not three.

As Derek Kidner as pointed out, there will come a day when the two ways, and there is no third, part forever.
