DON'T COMPROMISE

DON’T COMPROMISE;

 We are in a generation of compromisers. Sorry to say, that many Christians are falling into this category. This ought not to be. We expect the world to compromise, to give into their flesh, to do things that are not always above board. That is just what many in the world do. It’s their character, their nature, if you would. We can’t fault a dog for barking or a bird from singing. That is their character, that’s what they do, and sinner’s sin. Before I received Christ as my Savior, I was good at what I did. Sin was just a way a life.

When we, as Christians compromise on what God’s Word says, we set ourselves up to be used and abused. We are letting people know that our word doesn’t mean much. Compromise tells people that there is an element of fear in us. It allows others to take advantage of an un-sureness that is abiding in us. We need to let our yes be yes and our no be no. Whatever the cost, and sometimes it will cost you, but your character stands. God likes that!

 

Stay on God's side. It just works better!

Many of you know I am a hospital chaplain. Wow, what a rewarding ministry. Although the beds are full, the ER busy 24 hours a day, and the doctors, nurses, technicians, and housekeeping staff are hustling every minute of every day, it is an amazing thing the watch.

They are wonderful! They all know just what to do and when to do it. Each and every staff member is greatly needed and appreciated. Although thay may not realize it, but one could not get the job done without the other.

If the housekeeping were not there to clean, and sanitize the surgical rooms, the doctors could not do the surgeries without spreading germs. If the docs weren’t there, there wouldn’t be a surgery, therefore no need to clean the rooms. If the nurses were not there nothing would get done. If the techs were not there, the doctors wouldn’t know where to operate. If the Chaplains weren’t there, there would be no spiritual care, prayers, and comfort.

God made the church like that as well. We all have a part to do, and we need to get busy and do it. Without each other, things just won’t get done like they should.

We need to help each other to do their very best at what they are called to do. Don’t be like a bucket of crabs climbing over each other to get to the top! No, let’s give each other a lift up. Let’s help someone else get to the place they need to be…How’s that?

 

 

DEATH and LIFE...YOU CHOOSE

Proverbs 18:21 (in the BIBLE)

“Death and Life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat of the fruit thereof.”

Do you believe the Bible?  This is just an observation, but I think if we truly believed what the Bible says, (which is God’s Word) we would change what we say, Right?

Our words bring life or death into our lives. These two words also bear fruit and we will eat it. So what are your words producing?…Life or Death.
