In the year 1977 Mary MacGregor sang a song titled ‘Torn Between Two Lovers’. It spoke about a lady who was attracted to two men tat the same time. In the lyrics, she tells one of them,
‘It doesn’t mean I love you less’ but ‘there’s just this empty place inside of me that only he can fill’!!!
Jesus in the passage in 1 John 2:15-17 says, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” It is therefore clear that Jesus is saying that we cannot love God and the world at the same time.
Today’s sermon highlights three areas where people could be torn between their love for the Lord and their love for other attractions.
