A Man Without Compromise

I have been contemplating the biblical man of Nehemiah recently. What I see in his character is a man without compromise. He stood set apart by God for this, and accomplished great things. God was able to entrust him to oversee the rebuilding of the Temple. Nehemiah did not waver, even when challenged to new levels. He was not free of enemies, nor of those who would rather have seen him dead.

Nehemiah grieved over a temple he had never seen in his lifetime. It was only passed down by his ancestors as if it were mere legend. He grieved at the destruction of his people, too. And he grieved over the grief of those left behind to pick up the pieces.

Though constantly challenged and threatened, he never compromised. Even when he was being stretched like steel, about to snap under pressure. He stood in the gap for his tribe and pleaded to God for His forgiveness upon Israel.God Loves Israel He confessed their sins. He praised God. He thanked God. His prayers were heard. You can reference all of this in the Book of Nehemiah in the Old Testament.

I spent quite a while trying to determine if I have ever met a man like this in my lifetime. The years rolled back. I have known some “True Grit” Christians across the decades. I have read the accounts of some unshakeable Godly men.

I have admired the likes of Mother Teresa, Oswald Chambers, Jim Elliot. Some exceedingly great preachers, teachers and missionaries all come to mind. But after weighing them, no.

No.

I do not know of any man without compromise. That includes women.

Do not misunderstand me. I am not idolizing Nehemiah.

But I am joining him in his grief.

Why, why, when so many of us profess to be followers of Christ, and possess faith, do we so often compromise?
