There is a tendency in Christianity today to try to win the world but use the world’s methods. This always leads to compromise. In this episode, Nate and Gabe highlight the importance of not watering down truth in order to make it appealing to the world. As Keith Daniels said, “You don’t win the world by becoming like the world. The world will win you — that’s all that will happen.”
A wonderful summation of this command can be found in the story of the prodigal son. There was a season of life where the son would’ve been characterized as “swine“ — he did not value the things of his father. It would have been a waste to try to reason with him. However his loving father waited patiently, and, at the right time, his son was ready to hear the truth and repent. May we be encouraged to pray for those in our lives who are resistant, and to look to the Lord for His perfect timing to share truth.
