Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
To be a Christian-a true disciple of Jesus Christ-is not only an honor, but also a costly journey. To be a Christian, to me, means to be different. The cost is being set apart from the world, not engaging in many of the same activities of the world because, in all honesty, we are to look and act differently. There’s a cost to stand on your own and not do what the masses do. People tend to talk about, criticize, or ridicule anything they don’t understand, so sometimes we will be the butt of people’s jokes. To be a Christian, we may have to endure the pains of being alone. But know that we aren’t truly alone because Christ is either walking beside us or carrying us through the suffering. We don’t have to give into temptation, we don’t have to fall prey to our peers, nor do we have to follow the world’s standards. I rather be by myself doing what the Lord has called me to do and be, than to be a puppet and allow the world to dictate what I do and who I am! Be blessed y’all, In Jesus name!
Psalm 4:3 Know that the LORD has set apart his faithful servant for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him.
