Watered Down

Keep [actively] watching and praying so that you do not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” (Mark 14:38 AMP)

When our babies were little and they were in the stage of being able to drink juice, we would put very little juice in their cup, most of what we added was water for them to drink. We had to water down the juice so that it did not hurt their little bellies.

I am guilty of sometimes trying to water down the Word of God because I don’t want to hurt the feelings of the people that I am speaking with. What a pity. We know that when people hear the Truth of God’s Word, that Truth will set them free (John 8:32). When they receive the Gospel, they will be free from the bondage of sin, free from their past, free from anger, free from strongholds, free from hurt, and free from pain. It is not my job to water down the Truth of God’s Word, so that others can stomach what is being given to them. It is my job as a Christ follower to share the Gospel in love with others (Acts 16:32, NLT).

Join me in praying for boldness and strength to share the love of Christ with the world. Join me in praying that the words we speak will be heard in their hearts and resonate with their souls.
