886 The Direction of Your Life Part 2 - 1 Corinthians 15-33-34• 5 min
Why should we live like those who follow Jesus? What difference does it make? "Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame." 1 Corinthians 15:33-34 ESV Paul seems to caution us that bad company ruins good morals. We can be a negative influence. In fact, if we didn't know about life after this life, we wouldn't be responsible. But Psalm 19:1 points out that all of creation points to God. Therefore if we don't live like we know there is an eternal life, we are part of the problem. It seems Paul is quoting something here, but it was commonly known. It even is today. You've heard sayings like, "Show me your friends, and I'll show you your future." So our challenge today is to wake up! Do not go on acting like there is no God. Some of the people we interact with today have no knowledge of God. Do you want to be part of their celebration in eternity? Or do you want to be part of their eternal separation from God? Those are the 2 outcomes! How we live matters. What we do matters. It all matters. Today, ask God to show you where you need to change. A friend recently told me about this prayer: "Lord, how do you want me to trust you?" Ask God that question and write down what he says? Then do it. He may want you to purchase a lunch or give an enormous tip. Let's be people who live like we know this to be true. We will experience more joy in this life and the next. Also, please pray for this ministry. God is calling us to a new season. We need leaders who will help us scale this ministry so dozens of churches or businesses can take marketplace mission trips at the same time. We have proven, tested, practical activities that will help any marketplace Christian realize there is a calling for their life today. Now we need to grow, and I can't do it on my own. Please pray for leaders who will help us scale this idea and mobilize believers over the entire globe. Prayer is the key. The job is too big to simply write a plan. Voice a prayer for us today and let's see God mobilize his body for his glory! Thanks.
