Since I got saved and Jesus turned my life around, I have noticed MANY changes in my life; my social life included. Peoples lives change dramatically when they are highly favored. The holy spirit shines through us and there are people who are drawn to us, and people who are jealous of us. When we are blessed and highly favored, we can't shut up about it (praise God!) The Lord does not want us to shut up about it either. The bible says that we are sent out as sheep into a world of wolves and our defense is the Holy Spirit. We are to spread the good news of Christ and because it convicts people, they do not like it. Our enemies will talk about us, turn their noses up at us, and reject us. That's ok, that means we are doing what we are suppose to be doing.
We must be careful though. When we are highly favored, we want to spread the good news of the gospel BUT we do not want to try to fit in with the non-believers, or the so-called Christians, and participate in the worldly activities they do because we could lose our favor. The bible says we are to be set apart; we are not better than anyone else, we are not self righteous whatsoever, but we are called to be different. When we are out in the world, people should look at us and think, "I want what they have. Whatever it is, I want that." Be that shining light to the world around you - you may be the only Jesus anyone will ever see. Remember, you are blessed and highly favored.
