A Superior Culture – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 16th

(Our Culture Is In Christ)

TO THE BIBLE: Colossians 3:2 AMPC
“And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.”

As Christians, though we’ve been called and chosen out of the world, we still live among different people with different cultures, backgrounds and mindsets.

Sometimes, some Christians find themselves caught in a conflict between their faith and what obtains in an earthly culture.

First, it’s important to understand that being born again, your primary culture is in Christ Jesus. You must imbibe the culture of the Word of God.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; you don’t have another nature, or belong to another culture; the Word of God is what guides your way of life and principles.

Culture is often simply defined as the way of life of a people, and for us, Christ is our life (Colossians 3:4) and faith in the Word is our lifestyle (Hebrews 10:38, 2 Corinthians 5:7).

Some people like to identify with or participate in “cultural” ceremonies in their countries, cities, or towns of natural birth. However, such “sub-cultures” or cultural events must not negate or be contrary to the Word of God, and your faith in Christ Jesus.

The culture of the Word is superior; when you’re cultured by the Word, your outlook on life changes. The Word will choose your new norms and become your reference for and in everything.

You’ll only embrace and celebrate Christ-values; those things the Kingdom stands for—what you have, who you are—your heritage in Christ. Hallelujah!

Righteous Father, I rejoice at the transformation your Word brings to my spirit always; your Word has given me a culture and the mindset of success and greatness. I celebrate my great heritage in Christ—who I am and all the blessings of the heavenly Kingdom to which I belong, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
