A friend told us of someone suggesting that she do something that bothered her conscience. Her exuberant response was, “I am not of this world.” Good answer!
1 Peter 2:9 says, “ But you [God’s church] are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
Pray for yourself and your friends – that God helps us live as people belonging to Him and not of this world. Pray also that we “proclaim” to others His “excellencies” and what he has done for us.
