Accepted or Not, It’s Time to be Different

I am not there yet…

…but I’m on my way.

Accept me or not, I want to be different. I want to be a changed person living with a changed heart and striving for a changed walked. I am moving forward no matter what adversity is thrown at me.

As we grow mature in faith, our perspective changes. We don’t want to fit in with the secular crowd and we shrug off the popular Christian crowd. We don’t want to be in the land of popularity even in our occasional loneliness. You and me, we need to look for something more meaningful, something edifying, and something that brings glory to the Lord while strengthening the peace in our faith walk.

Galatians 5:1 ESV

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

We don’t have to be enslaved to the box of norms that people stick Christians in. Christians are not a one size fits all, or a one verse wonder. We are not constrained to live as happy-go-lucky people because the love of Jesus is in our hearts nor are we not idle, fooled, or sheepish in our beliefs. Light shines in the darkness, calls out the darkness, and shows the facade that the darkness tries to hide. Darkness runs away even if we are meek or quiet in faith. It hides when we are veracious and forthright in our stance.

Romans 5:8

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

God opened the door for us in our sin. He accepted us and called us out of the bondage we have been secured to while pouring His love and mercy upon us. His great grace has set us free. In this freedom, people may not accept who we are nor the Lord who has saved us. We can only do our best to live with fortitude in faith and be an example for others to see Him living in us.

  1. I love how Christ accepts us, and yet does not leave us in our sin but begins to transform us into His image.
