Sooner or later every believer faces this danger. It doesn’t happen overnight; often it occurs slowly. Do you know what the dangerous situation is? The danger is believers starting to feel at home in this world. We slowly begin to think like the world and even act as the world. The Lord Jesus talked with His Father about this in John 17. He told His Father that we believers are sent INTO the world (17:18); but are NOT OF the world (17:14, 16). There’s a big difference. Every day we are IN and NOT OF kind of people.
