There's an old and tired trope that still trots out for laughs now and again, and it goes something like this:
This town ain't big enough for the both of us.
But in the case of what we will hear from the Scripture this Lord's Day, it is your heart that isn't big enough, and it is two rival loves that cannot coexist there. The life of one means the death of the other.
So choose your side. Who will you love - the world or the Father?
