DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Compromise Is A Popular Practice, Be Careful
Today’s culture invites compromise. Failure to do so immediately labels you as “intolerant.” Today’s culture calls us to take from the Bible only what we “like” and ignore the rest, or explain it away as non-relevant. So like a chameleon, many are willing to change colours to blend with the latest fad and doctrine. Such causes us to lose our distinctiveness as God’s elect and become aligned with those in the world. When Asa joined with the Syrians, he ceased to be God’s special nation and person. Don’t lose God’s identity in your life to make you ‘irrelevant’ in the scheme of God.
Point of Emphasis: The grace of God is teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lust.
Prayer Point: I refuse to compromise my faith, others may, I will not be like them.
