Hello there, My name is Jonathan, I was wondering if anyone can explain the story and meaning behind Not Of This World.I do understand its a verse, but still cant seem to grasp its full meaning.Thanks.
Hi, Jonathan. I would love to tell you what this means but I prefer if you go to the store. The workers there may tell you. :)
Hey Jonathan, From my undersatnding, C28 is a reference to Colossians 2:8 which is:( from the New Living Translation)"Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ."So basically, dont be of this world, rather be in Christ'. Be Not of This World, but be of Christ's world; which is God's Kingdom. Another verse to help grasp this is, 1 Peter 2:11(also from the NLT)"Dear friends, I warn you as "temporary residents and foreigners" to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls."Again, speaking of being not of this world, as we are foreigners, aliens, ambassadors to this world. For those who are saved, we are not of this world, but of His Kingdom.Hope this helps! Hear from you soon - Josh
Ok great!, much thanks =)
Very welcome.Have a great evening!
I would highly recommend you to read Aurelio Barreto's book, "Not Of This World From Cuban Refugee To American Dream To Finding God." You'll get the full story there! :)
Petra Has a song entitled 'Not Of This World' that explains it pretty well, I have it on cassette tape, but I'm guessing you can find it on YouTube now.
you can find the song on Spotify as well.good song, Jessi:)
