In Latin, the pharase Status Quo literally means ‘the state in which’. Many a times, we find ourselves saying of our lives that it is just the way it is. It is the Status Quo. The Bible however counsels us not to be caught up with the Status Quo but instead be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2) and to look at God’s Quo.
If you and I are going to say that “Life is just the way it is, we are never going to see how it can be different“. The Status Quo may tell us that the life we have been given is what we deserve, but God’s Quo does not want us to settle for life just as it is, because God’s Quo is not just about life, but life abundantly (which we can have only in Jesus Christ).
Status Quo may be about ‘the state in which‘ we live.
God’s Quo is about ‘the God in which‘ is life, and that is ABUNDANT LIFE.
Which one would you never choose for your life – Status Quo or God’s Quo? Think about it!
John 10:10 (KJV)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Romans 12:2 (KJV)
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
