Last week we talked about the principle of being ‘separate’ and distinct from the world fro the sake of Christ. Indeed, God calls us out from the world to be different from it- the concept of holiness which we’ve talked a lot about this year.
This week we want to look at the other side of that practice, the practice of Engagement with the world. While, yes, we are to be different, we are also to actively engage the world for the sake of Christ. He calls us to be “salt & light” in a dismal and dark world. That requires we become active participants in our world with the goal of making it better and brighter. This week, look to the example of Jesus how he constantly and intentionally engaged the world and the people of it so that he might bring about a change in their lives. And let us follow His example!
Have a great group.
