"Set Apart, Yet Actively Engaged"

"The Christian life is real life, in real time and real space. Our faith is not a virtual one. It is an incarnational one. God made all things, all creatures, in physical form. He called His people out of one culture and gave them a land where they shaped another. He revealed Himself to humanity through His Son and saved humanity by His Son's atoning sacrifice - through His death, and bodily resurrection.

He has given us life, spiritual life and physical life, to enjoy to His glory. We enjoy relationships, nature, food, the arts, sports, and even technology. But we are also to bring a biblical faith and worldview to bear upon how we think about and experience these things.

We need to enjoy and engage the culture around us and not hide from it, but we must be wise about it, and be thinking about the implications of our choices regarding all things cultural. God's people are to be set apart, yet actively engaged. This is no thoughtless task."

Encouraging you to develop a Biblical worldview that impacts every area of your life ~
