Do Not be Conformed To This World

 

What is the standard of the world?

The world in the above verse is not only referring to the universe but also to ungodly people who are alienated from God.

This world has a set pattern of living that is contrary to the standard of God. The world contains many glorious kingdoms, which Satan seems to control and can give to whoever worship him as noted when he tempted Christ with it.

But, within this world are wickedness, iniquity and all manner of evil. In this world there are deceitfullnes of riches.

The world is filled with pride, lust of the flesh and eyes.

I thank the Lord that the bread of heaven has come down to give life to this world. This bread is the light of the world – the Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, though we live in this world we are not of the world because Christ is not from this world and He has overcome the world.

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. (1 John 2:17)

Isaiah 13; Matthew 4; 13; John 6:33; 8:12; 1 John 2
