Acting Like Everyone Else

It’s not easy to stand out from everyone else. Sometimes we feel the pressure to blend in, imitate the people around us, and conform. The people of Israel struggled with this in 1 Samuel 8. All of the other nations had a king, why couldn’t they have a king to rule over them like their neighbors? They forgot who God called them to be. These verses encourage us to stay true to our calling and follow God rather than the world.

The Fall (Genesis 3)

Have you ever wondered why there is so much evil and heartache in this world? In our journey through the Bible, we’ve seen how God created the universe, and it was good in every possible way. He even placed the first humans in a garden paradise to share in his rule and reflect his image on the earth. So what went wrong? These verses help us understand the problem, and provide a glimpse into God’s solution.

A Deadly Snare

We live in a culture that is obsessed with sex. Everywhere we turn, we are bombarded with images of scantily clad figures. You can barely turn on the television these days without coming across a program filled with sensuality or innuendo. God designed physical intimacy between husband and wife to be a beautiful thing within the proper boundary of marriage, but sin has a way of corrupting everything that the Lord intends for good. We see the destructive results all around us. Marriages have been destroyed, families have been torn apart, and young minds have been enslaved. God’s people must guard our hearts, because lust is a deadly snare.
