2 Examples Of Being In The World But Not Of It

Being in the world but not of it.  This is a command for all Christians but how is that practically lived out.  There seems to be much confusion so I recently asked some friends for their thoughts on the topic.

They felt God has called us to go into the world.  He wants us to look at people the way Jesus would and then act accordingly.

When looking back at my most popular posts of May 2013, I get the sense that we were able to do just that, at least from a social media perspective.  This is an overtly Christian website but I do have interests in other areas.  I just see them through a Christian filter and as it turns out, so do the readers.

The top two posts this month were from the entertainment industry –  21 Leadership Quotes And Lessons From Iron Man 3 and 50 Qualities Of A Successful Leader From Mark Cuban, Daymond John And Members Of Shark Tank.  We were actually in the world but not of it.

I think this could be a trend as I am expecting a large number of readers for Man Of Steel and World War Z during June.

    Ouch! Jesus didn’t make the top 10. You’ve got a knack to capture current interest. Would love to see the 14 lessons from the current DC issues :)
