“If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.” John 15:19
But what does this mean for our lives?
Should we be dressing a certain way?
Listening to a certain type of music?
Avoiding the influence of the secular world at all costs?
And how will this affect the way we can share our faith with those around us?
We’ll look at these questions and more in the light of the New Testament and implications for our christian lives…
