Summary

As sin is normalized in an increasingly divisive world, how can Christ-followers hold fast to the Word of God? Introducing a new sermon series called Uncompromised, John Elmore shows us ten ways to remain uncompromised.

Key Takeaways

  • Ambassadors don’t fight wars; rather, they are embedded within the culture and are influencing both the king of the land and the people of the land.
  • There’s nothing new about Christians living in a pagan land.
  • Unbelievers are not idiots to be attacked; they are people made in the image of God to be loved, blessed, and prayed for.
  • Resistance only strengthens the church.
Ten ways to remain uncompromised:
  1. Speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15a). Truth without love is a nuisance (1 Corinthians 13:1). Love without truth is negligence (1 Corinthians 13:6).
  2. Live the truth in love (1 Peter 2:12).
  3. Faithfulness not followers (Galatians 1:10).
  4. Prepare to be persecuted (2 Timothy 3:12).
  5. Suffering is sanctifying (Romans 5:3-5).
  6. Are you a lot like Lot (2 Peter 2:7-9)? Do you grieve over the sin of others?
  7. Win souls, not arguments (Proverbs 11:30).
  8. Forsake friendly fire (Romans 14:1-4). Quit condemning about non-essential issues of the conscience and support other believers in their convictions instead.
  9. Do something (1 Corinthians 15:58 & 1 Timothy 4:16).
  10. Hold on (2 Timothy 3:1-4, 10-17). Hold to the truth of God’s Word and the hope that is before us.

Discussing and Applying the Sermon

  • Do you struggle more with speaking truth without love or love without truth?
  • Are you grieved over others’ sin or are you just grumbling about it?
  • What are some ways that you can take action as you seek to be salt and light in our culture?
