Scripture: Deuteronomy 7
God is faithful.
He wanted Israel to be faithful to Him. He wants us to he faithful to Him.
He chose Israel as His people. He chooses us as His people.
He wanted them to be separate from the other nations and their gods and their ways. He wants us to be separate from the world and it’s gods and it’s ways.
I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.John 17:14-19
He wanted Israel to go in and kill the physical enemy. He wants us to kill the spiritual enemy by sharing the Truth with other.
Journal: Write a prayer asking the Lord to show you how to be in the world yet separate…how to share the truth while not being taken down by lies.
