NOT Like the World

Would you even think that the world was Godly?  Yet Ephesians 5:1 says to be imitators of God…If I am imitating the world, I am no longer imitating God.  What does that mean?  For me it means that we need to be careful what we say that it is a reflection of our Father…and some conversations I can’t imagine the Creator of the Universe ever speaking or even taking part in.  Its really quite absurd when I think about it.  I want to be like God the Son, and not like the world, the picture of HIM through me will show others that HE is needed, and the only one who can truly deliver.  But if I look like the world, I am just another guru offering something I can not deliver.  Christ followers have stood out since the beginning as odd, crazy, rebels, freaks…and their numbers increased daily!  Popularity is over rated, it almost always means that my moments in the sun are without the Son.  No can do!  I am standing firm and I am not backing down or running to my safety zone…this life and world is just a blink of an eye in comparison to my eternity, and none of it compares to the beauty of my Jesus.  Offer me the world, and I am going to have to say “no thanks, I’ll be holding on to my God…I don’t want to look like the world, see this is not my home, and I am just passing through.”
