Compromise

 

Compromise
By Tom D Blakely
~

I am pathetic, yes I am
to this I must admit.
I know I am and You do too;
Lord, to You I now submit.

Even when I try my best
my mind is full of doubt.
I read Your word and take it in
But fail to live it out.

How long Lord; Lord how long,
will your Spirit stay with me?
When though I seek to serve just You
I fail; for all to see!

I talk the talk and act the part,
I pray and read Your word.
But though I seek to do Your will
I know, I fail You Lord.

Here in this dark and godless age,
Have mercy on Your church.
Remove the devil’s mantel Lord:
The cloak of compromise!

Lord help us share the gospel truth;
let nothing make us fear
to spread the undiluted truth
to the hell-bound far and near.

The Holy Spirit is quenched when we compromise the gospel.
Should we tell others about an ‘anything-goes-all-loving God’, or tell the whole truth?
Jesus talked more about hell than heaven for good reason… so why don’t we?
We ought to obey God rather than men; if God saved us, we must share that with others.
In former times of revival people didn’t come to Jesus because heaven sounded nice;
they came in fear of hell, under conviction of the Holy Spirit, seeking God’s mercy.
We cannot expect revival when we compromise the gospel.
