The Bible says in Romans 12:2, ” Do not be conformed to this world”. That means, don’t let the values, the standards, the morals, and the philosophy of the world around you be yours. The devil is very real, and his demons as well, and he is called the god of this world by Jesus, which means he controls to a great extent the values, the standards, the morals, and the philosophy of the world. When you become conformed to the world you are conforming to the will of the devil. It is a very subtle kind of influence that draws people away from being fully devoted followers of Jesus and serving God to giving token credence to the Almighty with sporadic attendance at church. There is so much at stake for all eternity to not be super careful about the health of our soul, and the longings of our heart. The only people who will not be fooled by the craftiness and scheming of the devil are those who read their Bibles faithfully. Hebrews 5:13-14 “For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, (the Bible) for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice (they read the Bible) have their senses trained to discern good and evil.” It is so important to establish a ritual, a specific time and place where you read your Bible and pray.
