Not Of This World

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15

Do you ever feel out of place in this world? Feel like you just don’t fit in? This isn’t a bad thing, as anyone who loves this world doesn’t love God. What does this mean exactly? Does this mean we shouldn’t care about the planet? No this is speaking symbolically of the things or lust of this world. You look at our culture, the music and movies, it’s a filled with immorality. The world lives for the flesh and the spirit

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 1 John 2:16

Pride and lust don’t come from God, they come from Satan. They are used as traps to enslave us in sin and death. Fix your eyes on Jesus and not on the things of this world. For the things of this world are temporary, but the kingdom of God is eternal

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2

So what should we do as Christians? Should we just live in a cave, separated totally from society? Jesus has called us to be the light and salt of the world, how can we do this if we don’t associate with the world? Be a good example for people, show them the resurrection power of Christ living through you! Be a testimony! But dont conform to the evil ways of this world, be transformed in Jesus Name Amen!


Are you Conforming or Transforming?

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2
Are you conforming or transforming? These are the only 2 options in life, you are either following the ways of God or your following the ways of the world.
• The world says Children can be aborted but God says Children are the Heritage of the Lord
• The world says your spouse is a ball and chain but God says A Virtuous Women is the crown of her husband
• The world says you’re weak God says I can do all things thru Christ that gives me strength
• The world says watch your back God says As Iron sharpens Iron so we sharpen one another
When you renew your mind thru Christ you begin to see the world in a whole new light.
(1 John 5:19) “We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.”
Why are the ways of the world so evil? Because the world is under control by Satan. But isn’t the Earth Gods creation, how can Satan control it? Because we allow him to. You see God is our Creator but not a dictator he gives everyone the gift of free will.
So Satan has taken advantage of that free will and convinced people to follow him thru sin. Enticing them that the pleasure of sin are greater than the gift of eternal life.
Satans influence has become so great he has control of the world thru nations, governments, technology, ect. But his control is only enabled by people choosing to follow him.
(1 John 4:4) “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
The Power of Christ within you will give you the strength to overcome this world. Jesus conquered the world when he was raised from the dead, that same power is living inside of you thru the Holy Spirit.
Follow the ways of the world will only lead to your death. Follow Jesus he you will be giving eternal life
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; Ephesians 4:23
But we must renew our minds and not conform to the ways of this world. For we are what we think, when we think evil thoughts as the world you become evil. Keep your mind on the things above in Jesus name Amen

Happy New Years

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

Every New Year’s we try to start over, we reflect on the past year and our failures and downfalls.  We then usually make a commitment to make changes or improvements in our lives

This is the same when you give your life to Jesus, you become transformed and work upon improving yourself and your life so it can Glorify God.

(Ephesians 23-24) “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”

Does this mean thru Jesus we become perfect? Of course not, the reason we need Jesus is because were not perfect. He paid the price for our sins, thru him we can learn to become transformed.

(Philippians 1:6) “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

To really begin to change we need to learn humility and love. We need learn to let go of our pride and trust in God.  Jesus taught us all about humility and love. He gave himself up to be mocked and crucified to save us all. How many of us would be willing to do this?

(Proverbs 11:2) ” When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”

So this New Year’s reflect on your life, reflect on your legacy, what would people say of you? Are you leading the life you wish? What captures your heart?

(Proverbs 27:9) “As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.”

This New Years let’s make a commitment to Christ..Give your life to Jesus..carry your cross and follow him..and you will see your old self pass away and your new self-become transformed. Amen
