“…If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and do not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?” Galatians 2:14b KJV
This verse jumped out at me a few days ago as I was reading through my Bible. I saw it as God saying to me “If you, being a Christian, live like a non-Christian, then why do you try to get non-Christians to live as Christians.”
Whether it’s music that I listen to, clothes that I wear, activities that I do, movies I watch, words that I use, etc. I need to do it all for the Glory of God…even if it’s means I’m different from everyone else. I don’t need to – and I shouldn’t – just ‘fit in’…I need to stand out…not in a “look at me” way, but as a light in the darkness.
So how about you, are you standing out, or blending in?
