Day 130: Compromising God (1 Kings 21-22; John 3:1-21)

“There was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord” – Kings 21:25

Today, we saw Naboth being stoned to death because he refused to compromise God’s gift to him. What a display of courage and strength! However, most of us compromise the Lord one way or another, and we may or may not do it intentionally.

Being a Godly woman in today’s world is quite challenging. Even Christian women end up twisting the Bible so that it falls in line with their lifestyle. It’s become so natural, we even encourage each other into sin without realizing what we’re truly doing.

Now, lets look at Nicodemus – the very learned man. He was a real practical man; he liked facts and real life evidence. Its no wonder he couldn’t believe Jesus was his Savior. How many of us struggle with honestly believing Jesus walked this earth, died here, and rose on the third day?

Both Ahab and Nicodemus knew God’s word, but their hearts and minds were not obedient enough to follow through.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” -Hebrews 11:1

Are you an Ahab or a Nicodemus?

What areas of your life are you compromising God?
