Be Content To Be Set Apart

20141007-193326.jpg
Consider the number of marketing messages each day you come in contact with through what you read, listen to, hear through conversations, see through advertisements in the grocery store, on the road, on labels and tags. They estimate the average person sees or hears anywhere from 3,000 to 20,000 marketing messages per day. How well do you resist these influences or do you see yourself succumbing to these messages easily? At Compass Bible Church Women’s Bible Study we recently heard a great message from Pastor Lucas Pace’s wife, Heather Pace on the Book of Judges. She says “Actively resist worldly influence.” All of the things we are told to buy or be involved in, consider first if it promotes godliness. Always think through the foundation of every message you see. Ask yourself if it brings glory to God. Often the answer will be no, sometimes yes. Remember we are not meant for this world so don’t try to fit in all the time. So many things come at us that we become desensitized to the things of this world. It has seeped into who we are. How can you be holy and set apart? Heather says to “Be content to be set apart.”
