Christians in the Community

One of the most difficult aspects of Christianity is reconciling our life on earth with the fact that we are “not of the world” (Jn 17:15). Because we have been sanctified as God’s children, we no longer belong to the world. Yet we must interact with the world every day.

We are a part of the neighborhood, workplace, campus, city, country. It is not possible to ignore what is around us—we must find a way to shine the light of Christ while we contribute to society without being influenced by it.

The theme articles in this issue remind us that opportunities to make a difference in the community around us can be a chance to share our faith with others. They also encourage us on how to maintain our faith while we live in the world. May God guide us as we strive to follow His words.
