It is so easy for followers of Christ to get caught up with this world and be a part of it. Yet as this passage reveals, this world is not our world. If it was than it would follow God’s will and fear the Lord. Therefore, we need to stop looking to the world for guidance as far living life is concerned, but seek God has said in His Word in order to find guidance for God-honoring behavior.
Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ.
