Q. How do Christians not live in the world? What does not living in the world mean exactly?
A. The Scripture does not say we’re not to live in the world. Obviously, everyone lives here. It says we’re not to conform to the pattern of the world.
That means we are not to automatically live our life the way everyone around us lives theirs. Instead we are to determine how God wants us to live our life and strive to live it that way.
Paul called this our spiritual act of worship, the way we thank God for saving us (Romans 12:1-2).
