Being in the world not of the world

 This week I want to talk about being in the world without being conformed to the world. Here is this week’s verse For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6 We need to be in the world to show His light to the world. You cannot let the world influence you. You are in the world but not of the world because if you are of the world, then you will lose your testimony. We must remember not to get caught up in what the world does, because when we get to heaven our light will not need to shine any more. We will not be able to to share the gospel. When we go to heaven there is only one thing we can take and that is other people that God helps us share the gospel with. People do not want documentation they want to see transformation. So let’s show them transformation through the way we live. So let us live the way Christ did. We should desire to be more and more like him every day. The word Christian means little Christ originally said by the world as a slur against the Christian’s but then we embraced it. So do your coworkers or classmates know you are a Christian if not this week try to be a light in your workplace or school.
