Pictured at the very top is a beautiful flower from our garden of heaven. Do you see God in that flower? Sharon and I do. It is part of His creation….The AWE OF GOD! The love of GOD! Everyday I am in AWE OF GOD! Just looking outside at the moon at 3am when I usually start to work here at FGGAM. Watching the sun arise and set. I am in AWE OF GOD! I have learned not to take anything for granted and place my life in God’s hands. Oh my drear friends do not conform to this world.
The Words of Billy Graham:
The Apostle Paul told Christ’s followers not to conform to the world (Romans 12:2) and these words still have a tremendous and significant meaning for believers today. These words cut like a sharp sword across our way of life. They are not comfortable words. They have the tone of the battle call in them. They separate the weak from the strong. But they are words of inspiration and conviction, and we need to hear them today — and heed them.
We must not be conformed to this world mentally. The world by its advertisements, conversation, and philosophy is engaged in a gigantic brainwashing task. Christians must not allow the world’s sewage system to contaminate the Christian mind. We also must not conform to the world physically. Our bodies are meant to be the temple of the Spirit of God that abides in us. Nor should we conform to the world socially. The world attempts to absorb us into its secular society and to conform us to its earthly image, but Christ tells us not to conform: “They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world” (John 17:16). The disciples turned the world’s ways upside down by the power of the Word of God.
