These People have to be Nuts- 7/2/21

Do you regularly find yourself thinking, “these people have to be nuts” when you read about current affairs, politics, or pop culture? It’s tempting to conclude that our world must be more out of control than ever before. But check out this Bible verse written almost 2,000 years ago: “Do not conform to the patterns 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.” -Romans 12:2 The Apostle Paul was telling his people way back in the first century: listen, we’re living in a rebellious generation. So don’t live the way unbelievers live. Instead, be transformed by the renewing of your mind. And how does someone renew their mind? Through the word of God. In other words, look to the Bible to guide your life, not secular pop culture.So take comfort and take courage, friend. This isn’t some new trend. We build our lives upon the solid rock of Jesus Christ, not the constantly changing quicksand of the ways of the world. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb 13:8).
