God requires a higher standard of living based on biblical truths and there are many benefits. Tune in as I join Jason, host of the Solomon’s Knot podcast, for a conversation on morality, identity, tech, divine appointments and culture.
Living Holy in a Godless Culture
The world is telling us to do whatever feels good, chase after success and accept everything that is thrown at us. This leads to an empty life, full of regret. God was intentional in creating mankind with a God-shaped void that only he can fill.
How should we live in this godless culture? Like Daniel, we are surrounded by godless people and godless culture. We should know that culture is not the enemy. As God’s people, we should adapt to our culture as long as we do not compromise God’s laws. We should learn about the culture, achieve excellence in our work, serve the people and pray for God’s help. In order to live a holy life in this godless culture, we need the fear of God and to live with biblical conviction.
As Christians we are different from unbelievers, and that difference is to be evident in our daily lives. The Bible exhorts us: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world” (Romans 12:2). “Just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do” (1 Peter 1:15). Failure to display our faith will be of no help to unbelievers. On the other hand, when we do exhibit our faith we enable unbelievers to see the love of Christ in action and give them reason to explore what Christianity is all about.
