It’s a Big Deal

eating“It’s not a big deal. I can have just a little.” This mindset can be very dangerous for the believer in Jesus.
Let’s say your drug of choice (the area of your life the Spirit wants to replace with Jesus) is eating. Sure, a piece of candy or one extra helping of potatoes is no big deal. (Unless the Spirit specifically said don’t) So, what’s the problem?
The problem is that with each extra bite, you’re training your brain to believe that compromise is okay. Understand this truth: Our lives are changed through changing the way we think (Romans 12:2). Thus, compromising in one area of your life can lead to compromises in other areas of your life. Thoughts are not isolated, but linked, in our brain.
The “It’s not so bad!” mentality is an “argument” that must be destroyed (2 Cor. 10:5) as it leads down a dangerous path away from the source of everything you’re looking for in life – Jesus.
The next time you think, “It’s not so bad.” Shout back, “Yes it is!” And then exercise the truth Jesus gave you by faith empowered by the Spirit. Victory is sweet and a changed life lasts for eternity.

One thought on “It’s a Big Deal

  1. So true, Chris. I have noticed that a lack of control in one area of life quickly cascades into a lack of control in other areas. And it is usually the areas in which we battle most where the loss of control happens most quickly and most catastrophically. As I have heard said, “There is an enormous difference between some and none.” In an area where the Spirit has said, “No” even a little “yes” is still disobedience, plain and simple.
