I know you’ve heard it all before. “We are living in a microwave world.” People want things right away. No one is patient. People want things their way, and not God’s way! Patience is no longer an option in this microwave world.
I often hear people say, “Well, the culture has changed. We are just moving right along with it.” That’s not true because although the culture may have changed, the Word of God is still the same. So if we are to be living according to the word of God, what’s around us should not affect the way we live because the Word of God will not change—generations after generations. It will forever be the same.
Don’t look to your left or your right to see if you are up to date with this “culture.” This culture won’t take you to heaven.
The world wants you to conform, BUT choose not to conform. In the way you dress, talk, the things you watch, the places you go to, the people you talk to, in everything you do, choose NOT to conform.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
That’s my word for you this evening!
