Living Good Lives : Citizens

You’re chosen aliens, part of a real but unseen kingdom. Don’t conform to this world, but live holy lives within it, loving one another. The world will persecute you, and falsely accuse you, but confound them by continuing to bless them. Your gentleness and respect will win some over. Keep the perspective of the coming judgement and your future glory, keeping your eyes fixed on Jesus, who won us our salvation and is our example in everything.

Typical responses to society

  1. Condemn. We’ll have nothing to do it.
  2. Consume it.
  3. Copy. They do this, so we do the same.
  4. Critique. I like those bits but not those bits.
  5. Culture creators. Witnesses within the culture we are set. Proactive.
