There are some people who pretend to be something they are not. They do whatever they can to impress others. They wear a different mask for different situations; they hide their true identities. Sadly, many believers live this way. They attend church services regularly, but they don’t live their lives according to the principles of the Bible. They live to please other people, and to do it they compromise what they know is right.
Compromise means finding the middle ground between two extremes. When you examine your character, do you find out that you act one way, around certain people and then change your way around others? Some people behave one way in public why they reveal their true identities when they believe no one else is looking. Even Christians who believe to profess the Bable compromise their character depending on who is watching or listening at that time.
I am talking about people who come to church and say a Praise the Lord, Hallelujah when you ask them how they are doing, but if they aa re around others who use profanity, they use a few dirty words of their own without hesitation. They don’t really drink, but when their coworker goes out to a bar after work, they throw back a few glasses of scotch on the rock, they figure that since God knows their heart, they might as well blend with the crowd.
What about the people who don’t feel comfortable praying over their food in public, because they don’t want to seem too spiritual? This is the same people who call on the Lord in private or at church, but avoid saying the name of Jesus in public, because they don’t want to offend others.
A Maybe you had never participated in such behavior, but I challenge you to examine all area of your life. Compromise is a trick of Satan. It keeps many believers from developing the type of character needed to feel in life. For instance, there is no such thing as a white lie. A lie is still a lie whether it is an exaggeration, inaccuracies on your taxes on false ones that spare someone else’s feelings. Don’t be deceived into thinking there is a difference between big sins and little sins. As a believer, you are expected to resist all temptation, no matter how common or insignificant seems.
Power is the ability to get a result. Seemingly small things can stop Believers from walking in the type of power they read about in the scriptures. Although God understands everything about us. He hates sin and to say that everybody is doing it, is no excuse. It’s not always easy to do the right thing, but God doesn’t compromise and neither can we. It takes strength to do what is right. Christianity is not for wimps.
