“Just because our culture normalizes what’s wrong, doesn’t make it right.”
I love this quote. So much.
Our society has deemed so many things that are wrong in God’s eyes, to be okay. Declaring that you disagree with such things as a Christian will just place you right into a pot of boiling water.
But that doesn’t make it right! That doesn’t mean you back away when the world disagrees!
Why do we let the world get to us so much? Why do we accept what we know in our hearts to be wrong?
Because we have listened to this world for much too long.
If you need answers regarding where you should stand on, say, a political campaign, you look and listen to other opinions. If you have general questions, where do we often take them to? Google.
Not that there is anything wrong with looking up things on Google or anything like that, I, just like millions of others also take random out of the blue questions to Google too!
The point that I’m trying to make though is that we aren’t looking to God’s Word for answers.
We have and continue to look to society when we don’t know what to think. It shouldn’t be surprising when we come back with answers and opinions that aren’t tailored to God’s Word.
We probably won’t find the answer to 3568 times 123 in the Bible. Of course not. But we should look for the answers that God has for us on how we should live to glorify Him. The Bible is our guidebook, yet many reject it for what society says.
We have this huge resource of answers (the Bible) and we are settling for a cheap brochure that has to be updated constantly (society). The Bible has our answers, God’s answers.
We are throwing away our guidebook for a cheap brochure.
Many have deemed the Bible as outdated, but I feel quite the opposite! Society has changed, but God has not (God NEVER fades!). We don’t need to change our standards to fit the world. The world needs to change its standards to fit the Word.
After all, we are trying to show a Christ-like attitude among the world. We are His ambassadors. Don’t conform!
So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”
