1) We lost the Garden of Eden because of wanting something more than the condition and company of God.
2) Judas sold Jesus out because he had a passion for money.
3) Delilah betrayed Samson to the Philistines for a large sum of money.
Compromising starts small. Don't compromise your future for something temporary and incomparable to God's glory. The Christian walk is less about avoiding sin, but more about courageously doing God's will.
Being a Christian isn't just about following commandments: it's about letting Christ take possession of our lives.
Submission, the act of coming under God's will, will keep you from compromising yourself. Draw nigh to God—So "cleave unto Him," De 30:20, namely, by prayerfully (James 4:2, 3) "resisting Satan," who would oppose our access to God.
