Live Godly Lives

Presentation1

More and more, we find ourselves living in an environment we weren’t made for. We find that, as Peter says, we are ‘aliens and strangers’ in this world. The worship of God is not the norm, in fact, the worship of everything but God is, especially self. “You shall be as God,” says the serpent in Genesis 3:5, and that has been our world’s dominant belief system ever since. Yes, it’s hard to live godly lives in an environment that’s hostile to worship and prayer, that views such beliefs as naïve and even evil. But let us do so anyway. Because our lives and the lives of many others depend upon it. ~Prayer is Air

  1. We must continue to stand in our conviction in the face of adversity. Those who sow in tears will reap in joy. When we get beyond this season, and I believe God has a time when this will end, prayerfully those who mocked and shamed believers will stand amongst them. God bless!

  5. I keep remembering the end of the story. These are just chapters that culminate in something great for those who are following the Good Shepherd. Matthew 5:11-12

    It is hard to live a godly life, isn’t it? There is, of course, our own sinful disposition that gets in the way. And you’re right–the world sees prayer and worship (marks of a godly life) as “naïve” and worse. C. S. Lewis likens the life of faith to that lived in an enemy-occupied land. So many Europeans (and Channel Islanders) would have understood how that felt. We have to be so careful living in the world; the world so easily sees us as targets. Which is not a call for Christians to be angry and vindictive but to be nobly loving.

  8. The power of prayer is great more so than majority of people believe. It is prayer to our Lord God which brings about changes in our lives and others. Most people do not prayer they expect to be given without any commitment to God. I commit every day to God and the Divine. People look at us with contempt for the Light within us radiates what they are lacking. So continue to shine and stand strong within God as I am where I am and they are where they are through choice.

  9. Great word here. It’s even harder to live a godly life when we allow society and the media to pollute our ideas about what a Christian life should be. We need to start with prayer and Scripture and build on that foundation.

    Amen, Mitch. Our first loyalty must be to the Kingdom, no matter what anyone else says.

    Spot on, Mitch! Each of us has to decide our citizenship every day. We are not offered the option of “straddling” the border between this world and God’s world. Or, as that brilliant theologian Ken Kesey once said, “You’re either ON the bus or OFF the bus.”
