Scripture Session: Of The World

2 Corinthians 10:3 NIV

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.

So though Christians and non-Christians both live in the world that doesn’t mean we all need to act the same.  There’s an argument that if a Christian is indistinguishable from everyone else in the world that they aren’t doing enough.  If we aren’t challenging a world that is constantly attacking the word of God we are basically given consent through our silence.  This scripture talks about not waging war the way the world does even though we are from this world and live in it daily.  Its basically, saying that we shouldn’t act like everyone else.  Meaning if someone at your job is sending mean emails or cussing at meeting that you don’t go tit for tat with them.  Sometimes I must catch myself when I start typing reply emails to folks and ended up having to edit out 60% of what I’m going to say to clean up my response.  If someone cuts us off on the highway, we don’t need to flip them off.  If the person you are with cheats on you it’s not acceptable to plot ways to get even with them.  Instead, we need to maintain our Godly standard of behavior, pray for our enemies, and ask God to step in to resolve our problems.  Ask God for strength and ability to forgive incidents and situations that we encounter that could separate us from God.
