“Ya’akov (Jacob) continued living in the land where his father had lived as a foreigner, the land of Kena’an.
Genesis 37:1 CJB
Even though we are in the world we don’t need to be part of the world! The sad thing is as life goes on we have a tendency to settle for what the world has! As we continue reading we see the story of Jacob and his family will turn tragic rape, murder and incest, be careful of settling in the world!
“If you belonged to the world, the world would have loved its own. But because you do not belong to the world-on the contrary, I have picked you out of the world-therefore the world hates you.”
John 15:19 CJB
We need to be careful of falling into worldliness and its trappings! Remember we don’t need to settle for the things of this world. We’ve been redeemed!
“My lips will shout for joy; I will sing Your praise, because you have redeemed me.”
Psalm 71:23 CJB
Today, don’t settle for the world and its trappings, step out in the LORD because we’ve been redeemed and called to share His glory! Have a blessed day!
