It’s Not the World’s Fault

Thursday, February 21, 2019

by Dr. Paul Chappell

“Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.”

Philippians 2:14–16

It is no secret that the society in which we live is becoming increasingly wicked. All kinds of sin and perversion that were once hidden in shame are now publicly embraced, and those who speak for the truth are regarded as bigots. Yet it is possible for us to use the condition and practices of the world around us as an excuse for lowering our standards and compromising the truth. The Bible teaches us that even in “a crooked and perverse nation” it is still possible for God’s people to do what is right.

We are meant to be lights in the darkness, and the reality is that the greater the darkness is, the brighter any light will shine. But we must be responsible and do what is necessary for our light to continue to shine. No matter how hopeless the situation around us seems to be, no matter how deeply or how far the world goes into sin, we have a responsibility to do what is right and let our lights shine in the world.

The ancient city of Sodom is a powerful example of this truth. Though they were greatly evil, they were not past hope. Jesus said, “And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day” (Matthew 11:23). But Lot failed to influence those around him, and the city was destroyed for the lack of even ten righteous people.

Today’s Growth Principle: 

The growing darkness around us makes it imperative that our lights shine more brightly.
