    VIDEO: Blogger Christi Interviews Actress/Musician AJ Michalka on Choices and Compromise!

    Every week, I go through the “Girl Talk” section of Project Inspired and look for those seeking advice and counsel. I want to help answer some questions you may have about living out your Christian life and walk of faith! We want PI to be a safe place where you can ask questions.

    A girl this week needed help regarding a temptation; click here to join the conversation.

    PI Girls, this month, we’re talking about purity as a theme—and a related topic, how the choices we make and the paths we decide to take affect our lives. Choices can result in blessings or problems, and this ties into purity, especially when we face temptation and have the opportunity to compromise. It’s inevitable that we will face temptation, but it’s what we CHOOSE that matters.

    The Bible says, “Those who honor me I will honor, but those who despise me will be disdained.” (1 Samuel 2:30)

    When in the desert for 40 days while fasting, Jesus was tempted by Satan to worship him and also to turn a rock into a piece of bread. Jesus fought this temptation with the Word of God (the Bible), also known as “the sword of the Spirit,” in Ephesians 6. Jesus didn’t respond to the temptation with mere words, but with the power of the Holy, living Word.

     “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” —Hebrews 4:12

    Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, ‘It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

    Need even more encouragement? Watch my interview with AJ Michalka on JCTV’s talk show Top 3 as we talk about choices, compromise and avoiding shortcuts in life! (Note: Interview with AJ starts about nine minutes into the clip.)
