    Do not love the world or the things in the world.


    1 JOHN 2:15



    As Christians, we are new creations and members of the church of Jesus Christ, and therefore unique. As a result, we should not live like people in the world. The world is proud; we are humble. The world is fragmented; we are united. The world is impotent; we are gifted. The world is hateful; we are full of love. The world doesn’t know the truth; we do. If we don’t walk any differently from the world, we won’t accomplish Christ’s goals. If we live like people in the world, we essentially are imitating the dead (Eph. 2:1–5), and that doesn’t make sense.
    Christians are like a new race. We have a new spiritual, incorruptible seed, and we must live a lifestyle that corresponds to it. We are new creations who have been suited for an eternal existence. As a result, we can discard our old lifestyle and be conformed to the life of Christ.
