Scriptures are a powerful tool. We should be so thankful for having a Bible, but yet many of us aren't. We allow our Bibles to just sit and collect dust. We're in a period of time where people would rather have somebody tell them what the Bible says, instead of reading it themselves. We can't do this. Too many people twist the words of the Bible and add in crap. Yeah, Church and Bible Study are good, but we MUST read the word for ourselves. This is not the middle ages, we no longer have to hear a priest or minister tell us what the Bible says, we have copies of our own that we may read. We have minds and can form our own opinions. There's many different views on the Bible, but we all share one same view. Eternity in heaven can be found only through Jesus Christ. We all have different ideas on what "Christian Living" is. That's why we need to read the Bible and decide for ourselves what this is. Don't let somebody tell you that you have to do certain things because it's "Christian Like", read the Bible for yourself and figure out if that's really what you should be focusing on or not. As a Christian we have our own set of rules and YES we do "rebel" against society. Determine for yourself what those set of rules are and God Bless.
Here are some helpful scriptures for daily life that I have found. Go read your Bible and I bet you'll find some too.
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12
In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.
Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgement on it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?
Anyone, then, who knows good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins.
As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.
1 Peter 1:14
Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits.
1 Peter 2:11-12
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world, the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
1 John 2:15-17
Who are you to judge someone else's servant?
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind...
Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgement.
For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing. We will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction.
1 Timothy 6:7-9
Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful.
2 Timothy 2:22-24
It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honerable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8
But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
2 Timothy 4:5
Above all, my brothers, do not swear-not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your "Yes" be yes, and your "No," no, or you will be condemned.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds in the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own.
Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgement on themselves.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.
You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favortism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, "Here's a good seat for you," but say to the poorman, "You stand there" or "Sit on the floor by my feet," have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
