One of my biggest concerns when looking at the church today, is the church and the world look basically the same. The Christian and the heathen are doing the same things. I wonder how many Christians have went out over the last week to see the sequel to the movie 50 Shades of Grey? Which is nothing more then pornography for woman. How many Christians on a weekly basis are watching series on Netflix filled with graphic sexual content and ungodly filth?
This generation of Christians have completely lost what it means to be set apart, to be holy. As a believer, you are called to a higher standard, after all, you are the temple of God, if you truly have believed on the name of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 6:19). We are to present our bodies and our lives as a living sacrifice to God and not be conformed to the wickedness of this world. We are in great need, desperate need, of a revival in this country and around the world. It’s time to get back to the basics and get back to the truth of what it means to be a follower of Christ. Maybe start today by examining your own life and examining your own faith and see whether you truly be in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5).
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 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 12:1-2
