While Waiting For The Return Of The Lord In These Evil Days Believer - 'Stand Fast In the Faith...Be Ye Holy'

1Cor. 16:13 'Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong'

As a Christian you have to live in the midst of an ungodly world, and it is of little use for you to cry "Woe is me." Jesus did not pray that you should be taken out of the world [John 17:11,15], and what He did not pray for you need not desire. Better far in the Lord's strength to meet the difficulty, and glorify Him in it [1Cor. 16:13]. The enemy is ever on the watch to detect inconsistency in your conduct; be therefore very holy [1Peter. 1:15-16]

Remember that the eyes of all are upon you, and that more is expected from you than from other men. Strive to give no occasion for blame. Let your goodness be the only fault they can discover in you. Like Daniel, compel them to say of you, "We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God [Dan. 6:4-5]."  Spurgeon

Lev. 11:44 'For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth'
