Word of the Day:Stand up and Stand out
A certain boy grew up as a pastor’s kid, (PK) and with such a label there was a greater expectation of him in being an example to others in his behaviors. However this was not the case as he did not want to be an example but wanted to have fun with his friends by being mischievous.
Being an example is often about being different however, most of us don’t want to be different. Sometimes as believers, we want people to like us, and the safest way to do that is to blend in. But following Christ has never been about blending in with the world rather it means following Christ’s steps.
We need to stand up and stand out for Christ even though it may seem risky and uncomfortable especially in the standards of the world. Today, let’s dare to be different for the Lord. Let’s not be silent where we need to speak up, let us make a difference around us by daring to be different.
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
