Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, His good, pleasing and perfect will.”
We live in times where some of the churches are following the world, caving in to a movement of entertainment and “feel good” Bible teaching. The Bible is rejected as divine and inspired by God by many who say they are among the chosen of God–a royal priesthood who are called the “Church”. You cannot separate them from the world and the desires the world is continually manifesting in our society. To reject God’s teachings as divine and holy, is to reject Jesus Christ, and sadly too many do just that.
The Word of God says: Sex outside of marriage is sin.
Putting anything above God is sin. This includes even your wife/husband or child.
Homosexuality is a sin.
Abortion is a sin.
It’s hard to push back against these things when society is pushing them so hard on us, even on our children in school. So what do we do in times like these?
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world…” Romans 12:2
Renew your mind daily by delving in to God’s word.
Pray, continually, for yourself, your family, and friends. Pray for strength to combat the devil at the door.
Stay the course, keep the faith, and do not deny the name of Jesus with our words and actions.
Present our “bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. This is your true and proper
worship.” (Romans 12:1)
