Not like all the rest…

Reading this passage of scripture, I couldn’t help but think about what Peter said in 1 Peter 2:9&10. 

As Christ followers we are a, “chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. Once you had no identity as a people;now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” 

Are you hearing that we are supposed to be different? Not in boycotting and making noise for ourselves, not in making political statements and standing for our rights, not in living the dream or climbing the ladder. 

We are supposed a billboard for the love of God and His son Jesus! We are supposed to be a human demonstration of who Jesus is and how He loves ALL people. We are supposed to be clothed with grace, settled in truth, filled with a passion for Christ, and repeaters of the greatest story on earth – Jesus’ birth, His Life, and the greatest act of love – His death and resurrection!

Today, be different! Stand out in your love and grace, walk out your passion by sharing the love of Christ with people, and stand not for your own rights, but for King Jesus!

Be different today! Be like Christ!
