Amos 6:1 “Woe to you who are complacent in Zion.”

If you’ve been a Christian for a while, it’s not the flagrant and egregious sins you’re worried about committing on a daily basis…you’ve walked too long with the Lord for that. No, what should have you concerned is much more sly than out & out glaring sin…it’s complacency & compromise. Romans 6:12 is plain, “Don’t let sin reign in your mortal body.” Sin has been broken off you by the atoning sacrifice of Jesus’ blood, and all attempts of it to recover dominion over you must be resisted. Charles Spurgeon once said, ” When we think too lightly of sin, we think too lightly of the Savior.” And this happens every time you compromise or become too complacent…putting into jeopardy both God & your reputation, integrity, name, & moral character. So ask yourself this the next time you’re tempted to compromise in a situation, “Are you being faithful to God’s Word, or are you spinning & self- interpreting His Words in order to do what you desire?”
