We are different, so live differently! Go make some immigrants!   2017-08-01

… We are different, so live differently! Go make some immigrants! ...

 

1Pe 2:11 Dearly beloved, I exhort you as temporary residents and pilgrims to abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, 

:12 having your conduct honest among the nations, in that which they speak against you as evildoers, they may glorify God in a day of His visitation, seeing your good works.

 

My dad always said, "Do not do as I do - do as I say"! Studies have shown that in 90% + oll cases the student does what the teacher does, not what he says!

 

The saying "when in Rome do as the Romans" certainly does not apply to born-again children! If we then do like the people of the world how will they then see the difference, and be convinced that what we have is better?

 

As a police student, the first thing you hear when you arrive at your station is to forget everything you learned at the academy - here we do things differently they say! Then before you realise the commander has the same complaints about you than about them!

 

Even though everyone says you are doing evil, there will be a day when the Lord Jesus comes to judge, who the true children of God is. And then those who judge and condemn you will be amazed!

 

Even when they see him in you, they will not be able to say anything else than - truly the Lord is with him! Leave all judgment for Him, be different! This is your fingerprint of him!
