Never compromise on God’s Word

‘We must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.’ Hebrews 2:1 NKJV

We must constantly reaffirm our Scriptural foundations. What are these foundational truths on which the church of Jesus Christ is built? The infallibility of the Bible; Christ’s virgin birth; His sinless life; His atoning death; His bodily resurrection and mediatory work on our behalf; our need to be saved, baptised, and filled with the Holy Spirit; and the commission to carry the Gospel to the four corners of the earth and announce the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign. These truths are non-negotiable!

You say, ‘But won’t we come across as being narrow–minded?’ The law of gravity is narrow-minded! The law of mathematics is narrow-minded! Paul was narrow-minded: ‘But even if we, or an angel from Heaven, preach any other Gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.’ (Galatians 1:8 NKJV)

Cancer begins with one unidentified, unchecked cell, but it can destroy your whole body. That’s why Jude writes: ‘Contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.’ (Jude 1:3–4 NKJV) Note the words ‘the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.’ Our methods of reaching the world may change, but our message must never change.

You say, ‘But aren’t we supposed to love everybody?’ Yes, and that’s why we must never compromise on God’s Word.

Rekindle your love for Jesus
