LIFE > Life in the World 


The believer lives in the world, but the believer is not a citizen of the world. He is a stranger or pilgrim in the world, a world that is not his home. Really, the believer is a misfit, a misfit because of the working of God's grace. From a man with only a natural perspective God's initiative has transformed him into a believer who is now a combination of the natural and the spiritual, a combination which creates internal conflict and struggle. Life in the world is not easy.

At times the believer conforms to the world, and at times the believer cannot conform to the world. Living in the world is a dilemma, not always knowing the correct course of action and usually being misunderstood by the world. In the ultimate sense, life in the world is a lonely experience.
