Stand Out From the Crowd
This picture reminded me of the apostle Paul's challenge to the believers in Rome. Let's not just blend in with everyone else but take a stand for Christ and His gospel. May the non-believing world see a remarkable difference in the lives of Christ-followers that would attract them to the Savior. Are you standing out from the crowd? Is there something about your lifestyle that causes the world to want what you've got? May it be so for His name's sake!
CONFORMED or TRANSFORMED? That's the question!
"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." - Romans 12:1,2 (ESV)
