Meditation Thought: “ Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.” 1 John 4:15
In the marriage ceremony, two people become united into one. In the same manner the ‘ceremony’ of confessing Jesus as the Son of God unites the believer with God. The life – perhaps lives could be used – are changed; for the inter-relationship changes the life of the believer, but God is also doing differently than if that person had not confessed Christ as Savior. Once we accept Christ as Savior, and act as if we have a new relationship, we behave differently. Only people who have a similar relationship can truly understand! That is why believers often act incomprehensibly to non-believers, for they are ‘marching to a different drummer’.
But once we know God and recognize Him as Guide of our lives, we must obey Him, and not the usual order of society. We are out of step with the world, but more importantly, we are in step with God.
