Today in the 31-Day Challenge, we read…

But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”  – 1Peter 1:15-16

Somewhere along the way we bought into a lie.  Today, many view life (things, people, places, etc.) as either sacred or secular. They believe that the sacred is holy and “of God”, while the secular is worldly and “not of God”.  Unfortunately, this view plays out in ways God never intended. Sacred / secular thinking leads to a disconnect between our “religious” and our “everyday” lives, often with disastrous consequences for God’s Kingdom. This is the Great Divide. Rather than seeing everything as sacred (our occupations, our leisure time, our conversations, our finances, etc.), we let the professionals take care of the sacred and we just go about thankful that someone else has it covered.  But God invites us to much more.  His heart is that each follower of Jesus would use every opportunity and circumstance to reflect His glory and make Him known. With God, there is no Great Divide.
