We know that our relationship with God

is of much greater value than any cravings for power,

spotlights, partying, playing,

or superficial-worldly allurements.

We are reminded to avoid the snares,

allurements, and pretensions of this world.

Material possessions, money, fame, fortune, prominence,

drugs, sex, neediness of acceptance, 

approval, validation, or applause from people 

may gain ground with people, 

for a while,

but Jesus taught that our focus should be

away from this world...

and placed upon the things of God’s kingdom...

which have real value and will have no end.

The word world refers to 

a world system ruled by Satan.

As believers, we should be

 set apart from the world.

 We should be living a more righteous life... 

walking in God's Will

and not engaging ourselves in 

the dark activities the world promotes, 

nor should we desire to retain the tasteless, 

corrupt mindset that the world creates.

Being “in” the world also means 

we can enjoy God's amazing creation

and not get caught up 

in the mindset of what the world values.

Being in the world, but not of it

 is necessary if...

we are to be a light to those

in spiritual darkness. 

May we live in such a way that others, 

no matter where they are,

will see... 

something “different” about us 

and desire to know...

the Source of our joy.
