Monday June 30, 2014 “A Separated People”

Nehemiah 10:28 28 Now the rest of the people—the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, the Nethinim, and all those who had separated themselves from the peoples of the lands to the Law of God, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, everyone who had knowledge and understanding—
 If there is no change in a Christian’s life there is a good chance that person is being influenced more by current culture than by the Law of the Lord.
Let’s focus our prayers today in the area of separation unto God.  Jesus said and it is recorded in John 17:17 we are set apart or sanctified by truth which is God’s word.  Many today are deceived into thinking that the church must be like the world in actions and attitude to relate to the culture.  Truth is we are not of the world – we are “born from above” and we are not to love the world.  Jesus said we must love one and hate the other.  Pray that there be a true understanding of the cost of discipleship.
True disciples turn cities upside down.  What does yours look like?
