‘But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;’ ~1 Peter 2:9
Christians, God has called you to be different. He has called you for His specific purposes. God has chosen you to represent Christ in the world. You are supposed to be showing the world the beauty of coming out of darkness into light.
Nothing in this world can compare to working for Christ. Fitting in with the crowd. Acquiring more and more material things. Nothing. Living for Christ is the only thing that will benefit you now and forever. Be separate. Be holy.
