God has called us to live in this world but not be of it. God has called us to impact the world we live in and influence those around us in our daily lives. But so much of the time the church congregates like monks in fear of contamination from the world, that they cannot be a witness or a light for fear that the "dirty" people might rub off on them. I believe with all my heart you have to watch what goes into your ears and eyes, but if God wanted us out of this world then when we got saved we would instantly pop into heaven. The only problem with that is that God has called men to carry the good news of the Gospel and if there are no men on earth there is no witness. Think about it you wouldn't have gotten saved if someone hadn't told you. Jesus spent time with real people that had real problems, but he was so full of Grace and truth he rubbed off on them they didn't rub off on him. In this message we will be looking at the revelation of the washing of the water. The gospel continually cleanses you so you can live in a dusty imperfect world and walk as a light in darkness without that darkness overcoming you but the light within you Overcoming this world's darkness. I'm not afraid the world is going to contaminate our children, our children are going to contaminate this world, WITH JESUS. But if we don't understand the revelation of the water of the word. We will in fear of the world congregate together and never impact this land we live in.
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
