James 4:4 "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."
Believe it or not you are likely to become what your friends are. If your friends are worldly and you think you will be able to win them by spending alot of time with them you are sadly mistaken. I have seen this happen in a number of people's lives. I've always heard it said that it is a whole lot easier to pull a person down a mountain than it is to pull them up. They will always pull you down to their level instead of you pulling them up to where you are spiritually speaking. Parents will use the excuse of saying "My son/daughter knows better...he/she just got with the wrong crowd." Be wiling to stand alone. It won't be popular. Peer pressure is great. That is a tool the devil uses to get a good godly person to fall. But you can rest assured that when it seems that you are standing alone...Jesus is standing right there with you!! It may mean you drawing a line and becoming unpopular...but that is okay. God will honor that.
I have seen young people take a stand. My children have taken stands with other family and it hasn't been popular. And they have been mocked...shunned and argued with about those stands...but I tell them they have to take a stand for EVERYTHING godly or they will fall for ANYTHING that's not!! God will help a person take a stand.
We must do our best to win our friends and family...but we won't win them by wavering from our stand and going their way. God tells us we are peculiar people. You can rest assured that when you "hang out" with friends or people that are worldly...then you are grouped in with that crowd as a testimony when you are seen with them. We must stay prayed up as young people and adults to protect ourselves from the wiles of the devil. Everyday there are people who once stood for God and took stands for right that are falling out due to the company they keep. Yes we are to win our friends and lost family but we don't win them by spending alot of time with them because alot of time spent with them will rub them off on us and not us off on them.
Be careful who your companions are!! I don't know about you but I want to make a difference for the cause of Christ...and that won't happen by more and more of the world coming into my life!!
