“When King Achaz went to Damascus to meet Tiglat-Pil’eser king of Ashur and saw the altar that was in Damascus, he sent a drawing and model of the altar to Uriyah the Cohen, with details of its construction and decoration.”
2 Kings 16:10 CJB
Here we see Ahaz go to the pagan city of Damascus and seeing the pagan altar he decides to copy it! We also need to be careful of copying the world!
“In other words, do not let yourselves be conformed to the standards of the Olam hazeh (the world). Instead, keep letting yourselves be transformed by the renewing of your minds; so that you will know what God wants and will agree that what he wants is good, satisfying and able to succeed.”
Romans 12:2 CJB
We need to be careful of looking like the world and more importantly acting like the world! Our world is living in fear right now and as believers, we don’t need to, because in the LORD we have nothing to fear!
“Adonai is my light and salvation; whom do I need to fear? Adonai is the stronghold of my life; of whom should I be afraid?”
Psalm 27:1 CJB
Today, let’s not try to copy the world in its ways and especially in its fears!
Have a blessed day in Him!
