OK.  This is nothing new, and it’s certainly not going to be ‘news’ to anybody:  Our world is plummeting down a road of secularism, and moral decay.  The rate of change (what I would call ‘decline,’ what others might call ‘progressive’) is accelerating.  Many people ask where it will all end?  What will be the final outcome of the shifting morality of our world?  Are we declining or progressing?

 This is the point where most Christian writers start to rail against the world.  But that is not where I am going today.

 The world is in a state of moral flux.  And this is where Christians need wisdom to know that this battle is not being waged or won or lost in the temporal world.  This battle is being played out in the spiritual realm.  This is a simple truth which believers need to grasp if they hope to stand, much less press forward for the sake of the Lord.  However - sadly - this truth is one of which many Christians are ignorant.   

The Scriptures are clear.  We are called to be self-controlled & alert.  But in so many ways, we show ourselves ignorant, and given over to self-indulgence.  We are called to be holy:  A people set apart.  But in so many ways we look like a generic sample of the world.  We are called to walk by faith in a miracle working God.  But in so many ways, we get through life with little reference to or dependence upon Jesus Christ.

 We declare our concern for the lost of the world.  Are you concerned for the lost today?  Then please, please, please pay attention!  If you are concerned for the lost, the first step in the demonstration of your concern is to pay attention to your own spiritual health.  Your effort to introduce others to Jesus will be ineffective if your life is not the life of one set apart.  You need to understand that you stand in a tsunami of secularism.  In this tsunami, it is very easy to lose sight of what it is to live in God’s truth, and instead, to trade that truth for what the devil is serving up.  There is a reason why 1 Peter 5:8 says “Your enemy the devil prowls like a roaring lion waiting for someone to devour.”  We are told this because it is true.  If we live like the rest of the world, Satan eats us for breakfast.  And the ones we are called to reach with the Good News become lunch and dinner.

The same verse from First Peter tells us to be self-controlled and alert.  If we fail on this simple instruction, the cost is great.  Be in the world, yes, but not of the world.  Yield your life not to the world, but to Jesus Christ.
