A Fresh Jawbone — A Timely Word for the Day

Webmaster’s Note:  One of the things that marks many “Christians” in this day is compromise.  It seems that very few today worry about a life of separation from the world and holiness to the Lord.  Things that are plainly stated in the Scriptures to be evil are accepted, praised and even celebrated by many today.  This must be a source of sorrow for the Lord Jesus to see those who claim to follow Him to be so compromised and deceived.  Many do not realize that “compromise is surrender on the installment plan.” (Henry and the Great Society). Every step of compromise is a step in the direction of apostasy!  May God exercise our hearts about this!

 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the compassions of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, [which is] your intelligent service. And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of [your] mind, that ye may prove what [is] the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”  (Rom. 12: 1,2).

 

Submitting to Thy will,

And wholly for Thee, Lord,

We’d stand a witness here on earth,

As faithful to Thy word.

 

We would in holiness

A place keep clean for Thee,

In righteousness, faith, love and peace

Be walking sep’ratly.

 

We would no compromise

Should mar our part with Thee,

But faithful in our steadfast walk

From taint of sin be free.

 

O may Thy will supreme

Hold all our hearts for Thee,

Till we behold Thee, Lord Thyself,

And in Thy presence be.
