Our World!

Our World! By Keith Cook

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16

We need to understand our world.

Our world is a Dark World full of evil, violence, drugs, sex, and abuse. Evil gets more vocal and front page all the time. Once we are shocked often enough we then become complacent and numb to the abnormal and profane.

Our world is also a very vocal Third World full of hungry, needy and emerging people. Because of past neglect and abuse many of the under capitalized nations of the world are bitter and angry.

Our world also includes an Old World full of the status quo, with people looking for security and safety. They have become very traditional and nationalistic. Often they have outdated, time warped solutions to new and modern problems.

Our world includes a Disney World of fantasy and childish unrealistic expectations. Children and adults are allowed to live out of control with no absolutes and no moral compass.

There are some in our world who are Out of this World. Computers and technology is pulling us into the new millennium faster than most want to go. The future is here now.

You may think that you have special insulation from worldliness. You have it all figured out. You think you can escape worldliness. You have got God figured out and have put God in a box. Do you go to God when times start getting tough? Let Christ in your religion and allow the Holy Spirit of God to move in your heart and take hold of every area of your life.

Ask yourself:

1. Is the world in you? How is it obvious?

2. How do you hide it from others?

3. What are you going to do about it?

Daily Prayer Focus: God, search me and know me, try me and see if there be any wicked way in me. Continue to set me apart from the world as I am sent out to the world!

On The Go Prayer Focus: Pray for Marty McTier as she has a Total Hip Repair this morning. Pray for his surgeon, rehab, quick recovery, and no complications!

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.
