Winning Over The World

By Pastor Lew Pizzala

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Rom. 12:2

IF all the world is a stage than God’s people should have stage fright. The Bible calls for separation from the world. That doesn’t mean we are to separate from people. We are to be separate from the world’s system.

Moses understood that if he was to be a vessel that God could use he would have to separate himself from Egypt. Moses understood the power of refusal. He “refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.” Ministry is all about “refusing” and “choosing.” Not only did Moses refuse to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, he chose to suffer affliction with the people of God. What is the key to refusing the world and choosing Kingdom dynamics? Comparing rewards. God rewards and the world rewards. Which one will you refuse, and which one will you choose. Religious people wear a cross; the vessel God uses bears the cross.

Prayer:“Release within me a desire to choose a life of holiness that is characterized by a refusal of the world and a choosing of the Kingdom of God.”
