Living the Opposite
We can look all around us and see the signs of the last days described in the Bible. It's drawing nearer to the return of Jesus Christ, who will come and rule this earth. When we look around us and at the media, we see so much chaos in the world, and much of what we see is listed in these verses. As Christians, the light and salt of the earth, we should not be living as what is listed in these verses, but rather we should be living the opposite. This world is looking for peace, joy, hope, and fulfillment in somebody or something, however, they are looking in all the wrong places. We can see where God has been taken out of this country, but instead of talking about it, we should be fervently doing our part of shining our lights so that others can be drawn to Christ. Because we live in a world of chaos, we need to be the ones that others can see having that peace, joy, hope, and fulfillment so that when asked of the hope that lies within us, we can point them to Christ. Live the opposite of how your flesh, society, and this world want you to live. Allow Jesus to be your purpose and stability throughout your life to give you strength and be a light to those around you.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)
