so many of us need to break the ties we have with the spirit of the age.. there are so many things we do, that although they may not necessarily be considered sin by most, lead us into deep compromise in which we give ourselves to a life for ourselves rather than God.. some of us act more American than we do as citizens of the Kingdom of the LORD. Many of us make celebrities and tv stars our heroes, and we follow them and aspire to be just like them. Many of you look at the supermodels in music videos, movies, and television.. and you say “Oh! I wish I were just like them!”, “I wish I was like that” , “I wish I was like Darren Criss or Daniel Radcliff”

We spend so much of our time consuming entertainment and pursuing a life that reflects the spirit of the age.

But God’s love is better than wine! He is better than all the things of this World! Sometimes we put Him into the margins of our lives, as we fill ourselves with temporal things and with compromise

He is holy! He is an all consuming fire, He is worthy of all we are!

I had to stop listening to much of the music I used to listen to, because it filled my heart with compromise, and because it led me into the pursuit of personal gain, so that I too can be seen as cool, like Bruno Mars or the other stars of our age.

I don’t want to spend my life living for myself, ultimately, I could be the greatest pop star in all of history and yet be totally desolate, because apart from Jesus, all pursuits are vain..

I choose to give my life entirely to Him and the fulfillment of the desires of His heart.
