We find ourselves, especially people our young age, immersed in a culture of entertainment. We are bombarded from many angles in our surroundings with pressure to live lives of adventure, fun and excitement.
But when our lives fail to reflect this expectation, not only do we feel more pressure from the people in the world that look at our walk and criticize, but we ourselves begin missing the point of what we are to pursue as believers. We begin to undervalue the joy of walking in obedience to Christ. We stop seeing the mundane toil that often God calls us to in light of God’s will.
Thankfully the apostle Paul kindly gives us some very helpful, God-breathed regulating principles for how to live in the light of Christ, though it be the time of darkness. The truly Good Life looks much different from the world.
