Anyone can!

 Today it seems that everyone just wants to blend in, no one wants to stand out, to be different. Too many people are too concerned with what people think of them, too concerned that they will be ridiculed if they dare to do things differently. If we are truly Christians, we should stand out, we should be different because we are called to be different.  2 Cor 6:17 says, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.” It seems that too many people don’t really understand what it means to be “separate.” Could someone look at the way you act, talk, dress, and know that you are a Christian? Or would they be shocked to know that you are a believer? So many Christians don’t want to deny themselves of anything to follow Christ!   

Anyone can follow the crowd………… it takes courage to walk alone!

Anyone can blend in……………………….. it takes boldness to stand out!

Anyone can be a hypocrite…………………….it takes integrity to be real!

Anyone can be dishonest……………………it takes sincerity to be truthful!  

Anyone can be fake……………………….will we be genuine?

Anyone can cave in to peer pressure……will we stand true to our convictions?

Anyone can straddle the fence……………..will you choose a side?

Anyone can be a taker………………..will we be givers?  

Anyone can be a follower…………will you be a leader?

Anyone can be lazy, selfish, apathetic, and indifferent, it doesn’t take anyone special to be like that. It takes someone with character to stand up and follow Christ regardless of what others think…

    I really appreciate how you embrace your uniqueness and differences from other people. That is something I’ve wrestled with my entire life, and what helps the most, is seeing others who dare to be different. I actually saw this video from Apple for the first time today, and it speaks exactly to what you’re talking about. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oAB83Z1ydE

    I’ve also never heard anyone talk about Christianity like that, and I’ve never heard that quote. I think both are fantastic! Look forward to reading more!

      Thanks! Maybe it comes from being a first-born =)

      That video is very cool and inspiring. Thanks for sharing!

      I think a lot of people think of Christianity as just another “religion” but for me Christianity means my relationship with my Creator and it’s something that should affect how I live my life. Unfortunately we aren’t perfect (obviously) but it does cause me to want to live differently. My purpose and meaning in life come from my identity in Christ and nothing else in life has brought the complete contentment that Christ has! =) That too has played a huge part in embracing who I am actually.
