11 Loved ones, I urge you as strangers and sojourners to keep away from the fleshly cravings that war against the soul. 12 Keep your conduct honorable among the Gentiles. Then while they speak against you as evildoers, they may—from noticing your good deeds—glorify God in the day of visitation.   I Peter TLV source

Question. If we speak, if we sing, if we dance,  if we drink, if we eat, if we entertain ourselves, if we clothe ourselves LIKE the people of the world – Hollywood, Washington, New York, Vegas, New Orleans, Chicago — all the HOT SPOTS of the world, how can we enjoy the reward of obedience to  this WORD?

How can we call ourselves unspotted by the world? James 1:27

Don’t misread me please. This is NOT a list of don’t(s). It’s a glorious invitation to BE. Be different. Be favored. Be odd, even!  Be so above normal that people suspect you have been with JESUS.

Acts 4: (TLV) 13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and figured out they were laymen without training, they were amazed. They began to realize that these men had been with Yeshua. source
