“I speak as to wise men; you judge what I say. Is not the cup of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread which we break a sharing in the body of Christ?” (1 Corinthians 10:15-16)
It does not matter what the world thinks of you, but of who you are in Christ. You have been called wise because of the call you have in Christ. Come then as one who is wise and realize the gift you have been given. Do not live as one who seeks the things of the world, but as one who lives in the truth of Christ. Feed your soul with the truth of His Word and live into the life to which you have been called.
Lord, create in me a heart that seeks after the eternal truth You have given. Let me not be led astray by the illusory glowing images of this age. Keep my mind clear that it would not fog over with the illusions, but see the light of truth You have revealed once for all. Guide me along the narrow path that I may walk humbly in Your sight and live according to Your goodness.
Come Holy Spirit and sift my heart that the things which hinder my walking humbly in Your guidance may be set aside. Wise or not wise, let me not be concerned with what others think, but with continuing to run the race with perseverance. Lead me, O Lord, that I may follow, with You always being the One who guides me day in and day out. Let me walk fully in Your grace and according to Your call. Amen.
