This world is not our home. We are just passing through. But while we pass through God calls us to shine as lights in a dark world. He calls us to live counter-cultural lives that display to the onlooking world that our treasure is elsewhere. I admonish you to download and read David Platt’s newest book Counter Culture.
“The stage is set for the God of the universe to do the unthinkable, the unimaginable, the shocking, and the scandalous. And he wants you to be a part of it. It’s time to take a stand for Christ, join the fight against injustice, and counter culture!”
By God’s grace may we take part and go forth in love to display God’s love to those around us; and may we follow the compelling words of Martin Luther and:
Let goods and kindred go, This mortal life also; [knowing] The body they may kill: [yet] God’s truth abideth still, His kingdom is forever.
