BE NOT CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD: BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND, THAT YE MAY PROVE WHAT IS THAT GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE AND PERFECT WILL OF GOD. (ROMANS 12:1-2)
As a Christian what does ‘OF THE WORLD MEAN?’
We live in the world, surrounded by temptation, greed, jealousy and a love of ‘things’. But our loyalty is elsewhere.
How do we present ourselves as a living sacrifice? We live as citizens of heaven and demonstrate God’s love. We align our values to God’s values and transform our minds.
Sometimes we sin, everyone does, no one is perfect. We become like the world. As we repent, the sin is erased. God’s light shines through us and it illuminates.
COME NOW AND LET US REASON TOGETHER, SAITH THE LORD: THOUGH YOUR SINS BE AS RED AS SCARLET, THEY SHALL BE AS WHITE AS SNOW. (ISAIAH 1:18 )
HE THAT IS FAITHFUL AND ENDURETH SHALL OVERCOME THE WORLD (MATTHEW 24:13)
We are the light of the world, a city that is set on a hill that cannot be hidden.
GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD. (1 John 4:4)
