For the Lord’s Day 6.18.17

Dear Covenant Church Family,

The following is a quote from Ray Stedman:

“The world lives by what it thinks is truth, by values and standards which are worthless, but which the world esteems highly.  Jesus said, ‘What is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God’ (Lk. 16:15)… How can we live in that kind of a world–touch it and hear it, having it pouring into our ears and exposed to our eyes day and night, and not be conformed to its image and squeezed into its mold? The answer is, we must know the truth.  We must know the world and life the way God sees it, the way it really is.  We must know it so clearly and strongly that even while we’re listening to these alluring lies we can brand them as lies and know that they are wrong.”
