I Am A Born-Again Christian, But My Friends Still Want Me To Party

Dear Miss Cynthia, My name is Susan and I am a proud, single, 42-year-old born-again Christian of about 6 months. I have a dilemma as my best friends of over 20 years don't see eye-to-eye to my new lifestyle. I use to be quite the party girl/woman and although my girlfriends know my new relationship with God, they want me to continue to talk and act the way I did as if we were still partying and looking for men. I love my friends dearly but it seems like I have to make a choice as I have talked to them about this on several occasions and they think that this is some phase I'm going through and brush me off, and continue to disregard my wishes of them talking and acting a certain way around me. What should I do? -Gods First in Boston Dear Gods First in Boston (Susan), Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV) The same thing happened to me when I became a Christian over 30 years ago. My mom always said, "Birds of a feather flock together!" You never see a dove flying with pigeons. You are a new creation; you are no longer like your old friends. Now it is time to move forward and fellowship with others that love God as you do, don't look back! Your journey with Jesus will hold many wonderful adventures!
