Muddied Fountains and Polluted Springs

You may have heard the quote by Brennan Manning at in the introduction to DC Talk's song "What If I Stumble." He simply states, "The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle." This priests comment couldn't be a more motivating, aimed at the life of every Christian. Unfortunately there are many Christians who live two separate lifestyles, and the world sees it all. Proverbs 25:26 tells us, "Like a muddied fountain and a polluted spring is a righteous man who yields, falls down, and compromises his integrity before the wicked." Yes there are going to be temptations and things that come across your path whose desire is to see you compromise. These temptations can often come in the form of situations, things and people. The Lord promises that we'll never go through a temptation that is too much for us. Today you've been called to be a light to a dark and dying world. Choose to be a light that shines brightly! Don't life two lifestyles which fuels the fire for those who oppose Christianity. God wants them to see that there is something amazing about being a Christian that they need too, and that's a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Muddied fountains and polluted springs is not who you were called to be :)
