I was going to title this “Of Compromise and Struggles” but I changed at the last minute to something more definite and that will capture your attention strongly.
I WILL NOT COMPROMISE THE FAITH, yes I would not.
The last few months have seen me grow rapidly, develop with full force, and get more vocal about what I do ( Career and more). In the meantime, I have begun to experience first hand the very potential to subtly depart from the fervency, attitude, and fire that the Gospel of Christ has set in the heart.
No, I don’t mean to denounce Christ and the Gospel of Christ openly or outrightly, I’m talking about that sudden shift which is gradual. It begins in bits and takes hold of your soul.
You are now in the public eye. People are watching. You are caught up in public discussions and arguments that border on morality, righteousness and compromise of the TRUTH. There is a crowd waiting patiently for you to give your stand, and with sticks and stones if you dare go against popular new concepts and opinions.
Would you compromise?
You think about it. You consider it. You consider shifting the line a bit, pushing the boundaries a bit. Just a little twist you say, just a little bend, “I will not hurt either side”, ” I will not hurt the faith neither hurt the other side”
You think it, you do it but you really do not see THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND.
You say, “okay, I would avoid making a stand and keep the things of my heart hidden”, “I do not want to hurt anyone” you add.
But you really do not know, YOU CANNOT AVOID MAKING A STAND. YOU MUST TAKE A SIDE.
Would you compromise the faith?
Would you compromise the Gospel of Christ and the Eternal Kingdom of God you have BELIEVED?
Do you throw away righteousness and the TRUTH of God’s Eternal Word for a good job, money, clients, popularity, connections, and a place among those who control things?
God forbid it for me and HE forbid it for you.
Do you get so caught up in your hopes and aspirations for now that you sideline the FIRE that was once in your soul for the Lord and his Will?
I do not how high, far and excellent I will go in the affairs of men, but as surely as HE lives, I TAKE A STAND AND REFUSE TO COMPROMISE THE FAITH.
This is a record to HIM, my Savior and to you reading, that I Will take a Stand for Righteousness, For Justice, and for the Gospel of Christ and I urge you to do the same.
God bless you.
