There’s Something Different About You
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
We are a different bunch, aren’t we? If we are doing the right things and living life as God intended, to the world we act differently. There’s something about us that stands out. Hopefully we are different in the right ways so that people around us are compelled to ask the question: What’s different about … ?
Ray Lessin in his daily devotional Meet Me in the Meadow reminds us of some of the ways we are different:
In certain times we are secure
While others walk in fear, we walk by faith
In a world that is like sand, our feet stand upon a rock
With worry all around is, we have peace beyond understanding
In the midst of heaviness and discouragement, we have joy unspeakable
In troubled times, we have comfort and consolation
When the world wonders what will happen next, we have hope strongly planted in our hearts
And the reason we are different?
Your heart has been toward the Lord, and His heart has been toward you
You have taken care of the things that concern Him, and He has taken care of the things that concern you
You have given Him all that is yours, and He given you all that is His
You have waited up Him, and He will not disappoint you
Your plans are not His purposes; your commitments are based on His leading
Your desires fit into His design
You have sought for His highest and He has given you HIS best.
Good reminder, brothers (and some sisters) as we begin this new week. Is there something different about you? – Bill Welte is President/CEO of America’s Keswick

Think About This: Any Christian who believes they can flourish in their walk while choosing to walk that walk independent from other believers has one hand on the door that leads to deception. Anonymous
