why i want to be an enemy of the world

"Don’t you know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God?
So whoever wants to be the world’s friend becomes God’s enemy." James 4

maybe it is because i sat between my husband and my best friend and sang and worshiped His name last night

maybe it is Cool Runnings  "We're different. People are always afraid of what's different."

maybe it is because the Holy Spirit met me when i reached for Him

maybe it is contentment in His greatness

but the fun that this world has to offer has nothing on the joy that a relationship with God can offer

and as Greg Laurie said last night

"if you aren't for God, you are against Him"

but i stand for Him 
i will make enemies in this world
i will not be cool 
i will be a follower of Christ



who are you striving to please today.....yourself or God?
where are you spending you time, your money, and your resources?
whose friend are you the world's or God's?

  2. Today in bible study, I talked about being so attracted to the Light, like a moth to a flame, that we become so fixated on Jesus that we wouldn't be lured in by anything else.

  3. It was so good to read this tonight. In the place we are in right now, it's easy to feel alone in our depth of conviction, our determination to pursue the Lord whole-heartedly. So, I find encouragement in knowing there are other sisters in Christ out there who are content to be enemies of the world, too! :) Thanks for sharing at the SDG link-up.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
