As Christians, sometimes we just want to feel normal. We want to fit in with our society and to not feel like an outcast. We want to have a sense of belonging and enjoy life without worrying about not fitting in because of our beliefs.
What we do not realize is that if we were to join with our culture, we would be more insecure and feel more alone than ever.
Jesus calls us to be in the world and not of it. Do you ever wonder why he gave us this commandment? I do.
There are some things that immediately come to mind such as Him wanting what is best for us, or He doesn’t want us to put corrupt things into our minds.
But there are also things like being willing to suffer for his name, being willing to pick up our cross and follow Him, and being willing to be uncomfortable for the sake of the gospel.
I am currently going to a secular community college and I just had to leave my class because my professor decided to show a rated R Homosexual/Gay movie.
I cannot, in good conscience, sit there and watch that movie. It conflicts with my beliefs and my conscience will not allow it. This is just a small example of nonverbally standing up for my beliefs.
How are you willing to be uncomfortable for the sake of Christ? How far are you willing to go? How radical are you willing to be? These are just some thoughts I have to leave you with today.
Have a beautiful day xoxo ❤
