Are you different? I don't mean wearing cut-offs and slacks and walking really funny. I mean in a religious type of way. When someone talks about you what is the first thing they say?

"Oh yeah Brit... she's a real party girl," "Oh yeah Brad he's a real ladies man," "Oh yeah Gina she's a really crazy!"

How do people catogorize you as? If your a Christian and they catogorize you in some other group/list then you are in trouble! Why? Because you are a Christian! You have to be different! Christians (REAL) Christians have to walk in there pathway differently. You have to set yourself apart from the others.

It shows and believe me when you are a Christian. You stand up for God, you stand up to your belief, you forgive, your pray, etc. It doesn't mean that we have to be a real religious nut but it means that we have to set aside the world and it's thoughts and only live for God.

Look at Jesus. Just look at the saviors examples. He was your everyday guy except... he was a real follower of God. Jesus had friends, he ate, drank (unfermented wine), played, etc. But Jesus also spent his days talking about the word of God. He is our known and great example.

It's hard to be different and I know that. It's hard to live in this world and not knowing where to go. I am sure it is. We all are humans, flesh and bones BUT we also know the word of God. The word of God says:

"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14)

What comes out of our mouths is what people will learn. What comes out of us is how people view us. If people see that we are not living for God but for them, then Christianity is just a big joke. If people see the light of God in you and
they see the wonders God has done in your life, then they will know that Christianity is the right path.

Remember be different. Walk, talk and shine your God given light.

James 1:22-25 - "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it-he will be blessed in what he does."
