Like a muddied spring or a polluted well
is a righteous man who gives way to the wicked.
In every conversation someone is sold on something. An idea, a lifestyle, an opinion. You are either selling or buying, and when in total agreement maybe both. If you claim to be a believer you are selling or imparting or acting as an ambassador for Christ. The question is are you giving a truthful representation? If you claim to be a believer yet are acting like a heathen, you are no different than the used car salesman selling a junker and claiming it is a jewel. In other words you are deceiving folks. We are not our own. We belong to the one we serve. Even if you serve yourself you are not your own, you are owned by the selfish god, AKA satan.
Compromise doesn’t happen overnight, it starts with a thought, maybe a “cool” substitute cussword, or a “sort of” movie. Then it grows like a seed, a weed seed. You know weeds always grow faster. Before you know it there are no boundaries, no absolutes, no real rights or wrongs. Everything is at least sort of “ok” and you think to the pure all things can be pure. Problem is that there isn’t any purity left. Compromise isn’t pure it is muddy.
So what kind of drink are you offering those around you? Your friends and those whom you don’t even know are watching but are desperately seeking for something “real"?
Are you offering the pure living water of Christ, the one who gave it all for you? Or are you offering mud in a cup of compromise? There is no middle ground. You are either for Him or against Him, choose you this day whom you will serve. Was the cross in vain?
