The first part of our perspective of not seeing things as the world see’s them is to first have a good understanding of that we are not of the world. We are in this world but we are not of this world. The world lies under the control of the evil one, which is why we as Christians should desire to have no part of the world. Which is why we do not see things as the world does. We are of God’s kingdom, a totally separated kingdom, a holy nation planted in the world, but not of it. Even though we live in the world we operate and live by the principles of God’s kingdom rather than those of the world, therefore we are in the world, but not of it. There is a tendency to get distracted by the world when things are not going well in our lives. When pressures and difficulties come it is often easy to be enticed by the world and the pressure to be conformed to the world will become stronger and stronger. We must resist the squeeze of the world, which we can do by becoming less attached to the world and by denying ourselves and presenting our bodies as a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God. The Word of God must now be the standard that we conform to. We see life through the Word of God and not the world.
