In our daily lives, in our marriages, in our business dealings, we will hear the word compromise come up a lot.
People today are in constant negotiation for what they want. The word compromise means: an agreement or a settlement of a dispute that is reached by each side making concessions : an acceptance of standards that are lower than desirable.
We hear government officials talking about compromise on laws they want passed. This means neither side gets what they want, so they become good with settling somewhere in the middle. I think this is good and necessary at times to move forward.
But when it comes to the word of God and what He teaches, there is absolutely no compromising the word of God. Our beliefs based on God’s word are neither up for debate nor to be negotiated to a lesser degree. When God says something, it is final. What He says is right, is right. What He says is wrong, is wrong — no compromising His truths.
People get into big trouble believing they can negotiate God’s word or debate it to find a compromise. With God, it’s all or nothing. To compromise it, means to sin; and sin left unchecked can, and will, destroy lives.
So, let’s be firmly fixed on the word of God and purpose to do it every day. “No Compromise!” should be our motto — all or nothing with God. When this happens, we will experience His promises coming to pass in our lives.
Just a thought,
