STEP THREE

THE WORLDLY WAYS

 

WELCOME BACK MY FRIEND

I trust you're choosing to take only one step a day, 
which shows your heartfelt desire to be successful in your program.

Psalms 130:5 
I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in His Word do I hope.

WORLDLY WAYS

WHAT ARE WORLDLY WAYS, WHAT ARE THE WORLDLY WAYS DANGERS AND HOW DO WE AVOID WORLDLY WAYS AND OVERCOME WORLDLY WAYS?

Today we are gonna talk about some really important stuff, and the earlier that you realize these things, the better off your soul will be. 

It is so very important to understand some things about the Worldly Ways.

The Worldly Ways are so much different from THE WAY that Jesus spoke of when He said ...

John 14:6
I am THE WAY, the TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

There is something in the Bible that may sound a little strange to you, about the world, but I am gonna explain it to you and you will probably think of the world a little differently after you understand.

James 4:4
A friend of the world is the enemy of God.

That sounds pretty serious, does it not? Why do you think the Bible says this?

If you look around you, it is easy to see that the ways of the world seem to be following the devil's way and not Jesus' way.

What do I mean by that?

Let us take a look ...

Let's look at television. 

Can you watch a program on TV today that doesn't use the Lord's name in vain? How about a show where someone has not been unfaithful to their spouse? How many programs are there that do not include drugs, sex, violence, gangs, adultery, homosexuality, murder, theft, jealousy, conspiracy, or evil of any kind?

Why is that?

Because these are the 'ways' of the world.

WORLDLY WAYS CONCERN OF WORLDLY WAYS DANGERS AND HOW TO AVOID WORLDLY WAYS

Many of these Worldly Ways television shows are true stories. Some are creating Worldly Ways trends that others are following.

What about Worldly Ways magazines and Worldly Ways books?

How many of them are just like Worldly Ways television and they fill the readers' minds with the Worldly Ways.

Worldly Ways Music follows the same pattern. 

When the Bible says that someone is 'worldly' that doesn't mean they're intelligent about geography and the cultures of different people and places of the world, it means they like to follow the Worldly Ways and practice those Worldly Ways. My new friend, those who follow the Worldly Ways, will find themselves following the ways of the devil. Now you can see why the Bible says that a friend of the world is an enemy of God.

If you do a little investigating, you'll find that just 50 years ago, things were quite different. If you have a Grandma or Grandpa, or if you know an elderly person, just ask them how the world has changed since they were a kid, and you'll find that there was a lot less wickedness in the world just a very short time ago.

Now, 50 years isn't a very long time, and when you watch a really old TV show ... One that's in black and white, there's a HUGE difference in the way the world was then, and the way it is now, but over those 50 years, the changes were gradual, and little by little, the devil has gotten people to believe that the evils of the world today, are just normal. 

Being disrespectful is not normal.
Divorce is not normal.
Adultery is not normal.
Crime is not normal.
Violence is not normal.
Addiction is not normal.
Homosexuality is not normal.

But unfortunately, the world today, thinks these Worldly Ways are normal.

The world has CON-vinced people to accept it's evil Worldly Ways, one little thing at a time. Don't forget who the prince of this world is ... The devil. He's gotten the world used to so much wickedness that things are in a terrible mess, and people have forgotten all about how to live a Godly life.

Now I am NOT saying to hide in your house and not to leave it. You don't have to leave your home, to be exposed to the Worldly Ways. The Worldly Ways can find it's way into your home through television, radio, computer, books, magazines, music, telephone, friends, family ... oh, there are countless ways. Anything that puts any thought in your mind that is unrighteous ... What I AM saying is don't let the Worldly Ways inside of you, no matter where you are. 

WORLDLY WAYS TRENDS, WORLDLY WAYS PRESSURE AND HOW TO SAY NO TO WORLDLY WAYS

CLOTHING

This is an interesting subject. What does someone who REPRESENTS Christ wear? 

Now, let me tell you from the start, that nobody expects you to wear the kind of clothing they wore in Biblical times, nor do I want you to sift through your grandparents clothing for ideas on what you should wear. I am just saying you should not dress worldly cuz you REPRESENT Jesus.

Let's talk about the changing trends of modern times. Common sense tells you that many of the styles of the world today ... Do NOT represent your Lord.

What you wear makes a statement about you. Like it or not, when people see you, the first judgment they usually make is about what you're wearing. It's true, people aren't supposed to judge others, but certain judgments we make about other people are for our own protection. If you see someone who looks dangerous, the Lord gave you good judgment to stay away from them. 

Do your clothes scream for attention, or are they meek and humble like Jesus?

Do they REPRESENT the Worldly Ways opinion or your Lord's opinion?   

  So, would you say that to follow Worldly Ways trendy fashions would be Christ-like?

Let me ask you a question ... Why has nobody ever started a fad of respectable clothing? Is it because Christians are too ashamed? I don't need to remind you about the shame game, I believe you remember it. Isn't it odd though, that people would go through the pain of piercing their skin or tattooing themselves to sport the latest trend, as to REPRESENT the world but Christians will not go through the "pain" of what others might think to REPRESENT Jesus.

What about jewelry? Let's see if we can think of something that would glorify God in the jewelry department ... Maybe a cross or a crucifix around your neck, showing who you REPRESENT is a better choice than glittery gemstones and such. 

What about hair styles? What about cosmetics?

Which of the choices you make in these areas REPRESENT your Jesus?

I'll help you out on this one ...

Wear what God gave you ... You are created in His image.

If God wanted you to have blue hair, you would have had blue hair when you were born.

Be YOU-nique. Be natural. Be what God created you to be.

Don't live to impress the world and its Worldly Ways, but rather live to glorify God.

You ARE the Temple of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
What? know ye not that
your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Ask yourself, How do I glorify God by what I wear?

Don't ever forget that you REPRESENT Jesus.

Every person you meet, or every person that even sees you, is possibly thinking about Christianity but is too scared to go against the trends. But where did each new trend come from? They came from ONE person who chose to be different.

If you display a Godly image by what you wear, you're inviting those children of God, without even speaking, to approach you and learn from you. You're an example to them. You will attract those who are in your Christian family so to speak, by the way you talk, act, AND by what you wear, so you can see how the initial impression you make on someone is very important. Don't be surprised if once you start changing the way your REPRESENT Jesus by a different choice of clothing, and a different attitude, because people may come up to you no matter where you are, sensing the Lord's presence with you, and they will ASK you to lead them, in one way or another. Hide and watch. 

 

Think about it this way ...

You are a walking billboard.
Who are you advertising for?

By avoiding Worldly Ways as much as you can, you're not missing out on anything worthy.
But by following
Worldly Ways, you're missing out on all the 'gifts.'

When you must participate in something of the world, be alert. Always be on guard for any Worldly Ways that the enemy of your soul tries to use to lure you away from living in a Godly manner into these Worldly Ways. The world is full of them.

 

BEWARE WORLDLY WAYS AS WORLDLY WAYS CREATE A SLOW FADE TO SORROW AS WORLDLY WAYS OVERCOME YOUR LIFE AND SOUL.
