So many Christians don’t want to be noticed. They don’t want to stand out from the crowd, or draw attention to their differences. But when we make the decision to believe in Christ and follow Him, we become a new creation! And as that new creation, we were not created to blend in. We were made to stand out!
God has not given you the color of camouflage, but has imparted His Spirit on the inside of you in order for you to stand out and be light in this world.
Just like He is light, we are to be light.
”You are the light of the world. A city set upon a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good words, and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.”
~ Matthew 5: 14-16
He has called you to be light where there is darkness: to walk in health even in the surroundings of sickness, to be blessed even in the middle of the world’s recession, and to be good, despite evil being all around.
It is by exemplifying the spirit of Christ that we will boldly stand out as beacons of hope and love and be a lighthouse for those lost at sea trying to navigate through life.
Too many people are trying too hard to fit in, when they were born to stand out. You were never meant to blend in with your surroundings, you were created to shine.
