Standing Firm As You Engage Your World

As a watchman of your world, be deliberate in allowing influences that shape your values. The prevailing culture always veers towards disorder, greed, and lust, eroding standards over time. You witness the decline of principles around you. Take a firm stand for truth and justice at all times. Embrace the responsibility to guard and preserve righteousness in a world veering off course. You must be willing to step in and be a voice of conscience and reason when sound principles are watered down or abandoned entirely. Be unwavering in upholding what is right, holding the torch of integrity high amidst prevailing darkness.

Engage your world, don’t hide in your church or seemingly safe spaces. If you don’t set your terms, the world will dictate them, and you’ll lose. The corruption in the world finds its way into the house of God sooner or later. So, you have to take a stand for your values wherever you are. The dark world is driven by greed and lust, corrupting even the purest souls. Be the one who never endorses bribery or shortcuts. Insist on doing things properly and orderly at all times. As a watchman, uphold truth and justice in a world tempted by disorder.

From Romans 12:2 (ESV), “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” You must be deliberate in allowing biblical teachings to be your primary influence. The secret is to give the word of God enough thought and reflection so that it takes root in your life. As people change and relax standards, your meditations on God’s word will strengthen you to resist the rising tide of secularism, sexual perversion, and materialism.
