Can the Word of God Fit Your Lifestyle?

Dont compromise and try to make the Word of God fit your life... but let your life fit the Word of God!

Don't compromise and try to make the Word of God fit your life... but let your life fit the Word of God!

Have you ever been out shopping for clothes… or perhaps shoes, and you try them on at the store, and they seemingly fit you and are the RIGHT SIZE… but when you get home, it doesn’t seem to fit right anymore?

It’s either TOO tight in certain spots… or TOO loose on you… or sags in areas it doesn’t have any purpose sagging in… you get my drift.

There is nothing wrong with the clothes or the shoes itself. It came in the RIGHT SIZE, and did NOT magically change sizes during the time you bought it from the store… and took it home.

The thing that went wrong, is us 🙂  — throughout the day, our feet swell larger and then decompress and get smaller at certain times.

Also, dependent on what time of the day it is… our bodies might be a little larger (especially if you just had run-in with an all-you-can-eat buffet), or you might be a little bit smaller.

So in the end — the shoes or the clothes are the RIGHT SIZE, but we are the ones who are always changing, and trying to get stuff that is the RIGHT SIZE, to fit on us.

I believe the same is true with the Word of God. The Word of God is ALWAYS the right fit, the right size, the right measurement… and always will be, as Jesus is the same “yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8)

This week on the Today Abundance blog, we have more or less been talking about “Things that Make People Fall OUT of Their Faith”.

One thing that makes people fall out of faith is the TEMPTATIONS of life. And when tempted, many good Christian people opt to try and compromise… and FORCE the Word of God to fit their life.

But the problem is this — I wear a Size 10.5 shoe size. No matter how hard I try, I would NEVER be able to force my foot into a Size 6 shoe. It would be impossible.

The New Testament of the Bible talks warns us of fornication (premarital sex). So just because we are literally “burning” to have sex with that person we are living with and are unmarried to… doesn’t mean we should try and COMPROMISE, and say that that portion of the Bible is in error, and doesn’t fit to today’s standards.

No, go ahead and excuse yourself, take a nice cold shower… and cool that “burn” off friend!

You see, either the Bible is ALL 100% correct… or it is 100% false… and that’s the bottom line. We can’t say that 80% of the Word is true… or 60% is true. We cannot accept some parts… and then deny other parts.

Or how about this:

Just because we have “always done something” which is a sin… doesn’t mean we should continue to do so after we have received the truth. So example — if a person were to find out that he should not cheat on his taxes (remember that little verse about not stealing?)… and he has been cheating the past 20 years… that doesn’t mean he should KEEP ON sinning, because he’s always done it.

No, he should repent of his past sins, and from that point on — do what is right going on forward.

You see friend, the Word of God is ALWAYS going to be the RIGHT FIT for us… IF we allow it to fit in our lives. Never try to compromise the Word of God. Allow it to fit in your life — and you will NEVER stay disappointed!
