The children of God are a holy nation, a royal priesthood a special people. They are not like the rest of the world. Jesus calls us to be separate unto Him, the called out ones. We must not be like the rest of the world. we must separate ourselves unto Jesus. We ought to be salt, and light in darkness. We must proclaim Jesus Christ in this world. We are not of this world.
If we are of Christ we are not of this world. We must take upon us the yoke of Jesus and learn from Him. We must live for Him, listen to Him, follow Him. and do what is pleasing to Him. We must not strive to be like the world but we must be changed by the renewal of our mind. We must have the mind of Christ and speak the words of Christ. In everything we have to represent Jesus. We must be like Him. If we are of this world we cannot be of the kingdom of God. If we fit into this world we fit out of the kingdom of God. Are we separate? Have we separated ourselves unto Jesus and are we living for Him, or are we still trying to fit into this world and be acceptable to this world? Whoever wants to be a friend of this world makes himself an enemy of God. If we separate ourselves unto Jesus He will accept us He will use us for His kingdom, but if we try to be like this world then we are not worthy of Jesus and we will not fit into His kingdom. Are we separated unto Jesus? Are we living our lives to please Him or are we still seeking for the acceptance of men and to fit into this world that is doomed?
May Jesus bless you.
