"Living In A Fallen World"
May 14, 2021 | By Chuck
From the local news to the national and world news, it’s unbelievable the things that are happening today. We are shocked by the horrible actions of people. Immorality and violence are reported daily? What is going on in our world today? Maybe a better question is, why are we so shocked and surprised by all of the nonsense we see today? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like any of the ungodliness that’s so prevalent, but it doesn’t shock me. Brothers and sisters, I’m not surprised by the filthy sinfulness of this world because we live in a fallen world.
Our world has fallen deep into corruption since man’s fall into sin in the garden (Gen. 3). The sad reality of our fallen world is that sin isn’t recognized as sin and corruption is no longer corrupt. So, what do we do? How are Christians to make it while living in a fallen world? As Christians we must remove our eyes from the shock of the current state of this sinful world and keep our eyes on Jesus. We must remember that Jesus is the answer and solution to our sin problem. We must never forget that we will overcome this sinful world victoriously through our Lord Jesus Christ.
“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God” (I Jno. 5:4-5)?
