Friendly Alliance Between The Church And The World

Isaiah_60-1: Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee

Isaiah_60-1: Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee

Christians should stand out like sparkling diamonds against a rough and dark background. We should be poised, cultured, courteous, gracious—but firm in the things that we do and don’t do. We should laugh and be radiant, but we should refuse sinful pleasure.

Matthew_5-14: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid, I Am The Light Of The World

Matthew_5-14: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid, I Am The Light Of The World

A distinctive mark of our times is that the line between the church and the world is often difficult to discern. In many religious circles there is a friendly alliance between the church and the world. The Scripture teaches that certainly the church is to go to the world and live in the world, but without partaking of its evil deeds.

Psalms_119-105: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path

Psalms_119-105: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path

This is an age of compromise, expediency and toleration. Yet we read in the Word of God such statements as: “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean” (2 Corinthians 6:17). So we face a dilemma—which voice will we listen to? Which appeal will we yield to?

Matthew_5-16: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven

Matthew_5-16: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven

The Christian’s priorities are the kingdom of Christ … dominated by scriptural standards and Christian ideals. In seeking to know the will of God regarding perplexities and problems, the Christian must come to the Bible for the solution of his problem, with an open mind and a willing heart.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I confess that at times I have conformed more to the world than to You. Please forgive me and help me to walk in Your ways. I want to shine for You so that others will be drawn to Your light. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

 

 

 

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
