This is a note I did on facebook a while back and when I was thinking of what to do my new blog post on I kept thinking back to this. So I hope you enjoy this post and let me know your thoughts on the matter.
I am afraid that many Christians today are no longer worried about what is important in the word of our Lord. I see so many people today who go out and party, drink, cuss, dress immodestly and just do not seem to care anymore. What good does any of that do? We are not to be of this world, and just because “everyone else does it” it does not mean that we should do it, too! I know that people have fun at the beach, but are the beaches a good place for us to be? Do we need to surround ourselves with people who are indecently dressed and probably have a cooler of beer? I know that we may not be able to control what other people do, but we can control where we go and what we wear. Immodesty is not just a girl thing, either. Young men (men off all ages in fact) should wear shirts in public. A girl can lust after a guy without a shirt on as easily as a guy can lust at a girl in a bikini.
We all need to think before we act. We should always ask ourselves, would I want to dress like this in front of the Lord? Would we want him to come and see us at the beach half dressed? At a club getting wasted? The Lord sees all that we do; even though he is not physically present, He does see us when we are dressed immodestly. The Lord is our shepherded! Just because we are sheep does not mean we have to be followers of the world. We should follow Christ! Christians should make an effort to separate themselves from the world (and the world of sin). I know I am not perfect, but like my dad said one day, “I can’t walk on water that is why I look to Jesus.”
Young people today need to be less worried about what others think or "fitting in" with the crowd. I know that I see cute bikinis at the store, but they are not worth me losing my soul over. We should all want to strive to be Christians, but being a Christian is a lot more than just saying, "Hey, I am a Christian." Actions speak louder than words!
We need to be sheep, but we need to be careful who we follow.
