1 John 2:15-17


In our daily lives, we find ourselves bombarded with an overwhelming influx of ungodly content from the moment we wake up. Social media platforms have become breeding grounds where individuals seek validation and demand others to idolize their personalities, diverting attention away from the worship of the Almighty.

Meanwhile, the realm of entertainment constantly churns out headlines filled with stories of infidelity, criminal acts, and relentless assaults on faith and the divine. Although we may manage to momentarily escape this deluge, it is increasingly evident that the prevailing anti-God narratives of our culture are gaining popularity, making it all the more of a challenge to evade their pervasive influence.

Beyond mere evasion, our responsibility as believers transcends passive resistance; we must boldly and resolutely reject these influences in their entirety. It is critical for us to uphold a loftier standard and fervently combat anything that undermines the glory of God’s kingdom. Like a valiant warrior fortifying himself on the battlefield, bracing for the relentless assaults of the enemy, we too must equip ourselves to withstand and repel the pervasive influences of today’s culture.

Romans 12:2 to not join the thinking of today’s world. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

When we courageously opt out of the conforming currents of today’s culture, our hearts and minds embark on a journey of intimate communion with God. As we delve into a deeper and more meaningful relationship with the Divine, our capacity to connect with Him expands, unfurling like the petals of a blossoming flower. We are summoned to rally behind His sacred undertakings, even when it may seem as though we are relinquishing the allure of momentary indulgences enjoyed by others. Yet, in the grand tapestry of eternity, nothing rivals the immense value of remaining steadfast in our convictions as faithful followers of Christ.


1. Commit Romans 12:2 to memory.
