The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair.
But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture.
We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. (2 Cor 10:3 (MSG)
It doesn’t take long for us all to adapt to the world‘s systems. I was talking with someone yesterday and recounting how my wife and I together with our three girls, moved from our home in the north, down to the south of England in ‘96. Our girls arrived at their new school on the first day of term all speaking in their northern dialects, they all arrived back home the same day - all speaking fluent southern!
It only takes a few years of ‘growing up’ anywhere to see how all the world’s system’s work - needing to belong, lusting jealousy, bitterness, rivalry …!
BUT … when Christ comes into our lives, we find have everything that GOD gave Jesus; we can finally be content within who we truly are; and we find we have a genuine sense of holy belonging - acceptance, love …
Child of the Living GOD, don’t struggle to fit in anymore - just receive of His Grace and be at Peace. ❤️
