As followers of Christ, who are in Christ, our God of the universe has specifically chosen and appointed us to live on His terms and no longer on the world's terms. When we were saved by Jesus by accepting Him as our Lord and Savior, we abandoned our old way of living and the ways of the world, to live according to God's ways. So we no longer live, but Christ lives in us and through us. We raise ourselves to higher standards than the world, because it isn't the world we are living for. We are living for Jesus who is alive and lives in us and through us.

We are children of the most high God so do NOT conform!

The Bible tells us, "Do not conform any longer to the standard and the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- His good, pleasing and perfect will." (Romans 12:2)

"Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." (Proverbs 4:23)

Be smart and protect your heart! Be careful what you allow inside of your heart, because it is where Jesus dwells. Your heart is the wellspring of life! Be careful what you listen to, what you watch on television, what you read, and what you meditate on daily. Discern these things through the truth of God's word. Don't live in sin by living for the world! Use the wisdom of God's word and the Holy Spirit for discernment! The Holy Spirit is our Discernment and God has given us the Bible for wisdom and guidance to know the difference between what is right and what is wrong, which way we should go and which way we shouldn't, as well as what is of God and what is not of God.

It is so important to know and understand the Bible, because knowing the truth of God's word helps to discern the truth from satan's lies. The Holy Spirit will let you know, inside of your heart, what is good, pleasing, right, true, and of God.

"Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things." (Philippians 4:8)

Know who you are in God, know your heart in God, know where you stand with God, and be influenced by God. As followers of Christ, who are in Christ, don't let the world influence you, but let God influence the world through you! We have been called by God not to fit in with this world, but to stand out for Christ. We are in this world, but not of this world. Jesus said, "They are not of this world just as I am not of this world."

There are two paths to take in this life! The wide road, which is the road that the world follows, many follow it. Then there is the narrow road, which the body of Christ follows, and few find it. The wide road leads to destruction, but the narrow road leads to life because Jesus, who we follow down the narrow road, is life.

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Matthew 7:13-14)

Choose life! Choose Jesus! Follow Christ! We are undefined by the world and defined by God.
