2 Timothy 1:9 (ESV)
Who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began.
A lot of people say they’re Christians, but not all of them live that way. They talk the talk, but they don’t walk the walk.
Would you say people know that you’re a Christian just because you say it, or do they know it because you live it? To be holy is to live your life set apart in such a way that people can tell there’s something different about you even without you telling them.
As Christians, we shouldn’t be doing what everyone else is doing. We shouldn’t just conform to what’s normal.
When everyone’s talking trash about someone, you choose to be their one and only friend. When others are sleeping with their boyfriend or girlfriend, you choose to wait for the person you’re going to marry. When people you know are making crude jokes or comments, you choose not to be a part of it.
Choose to live your life set apart for God. Be different in a good way. Choose to love better than anyone else. Choose to live your life with more joy, excitement, and contentment than everyone else. Choose to be someone who is known by what you’re for rather than complaining all the time.
What ways do you need to start living a life set apart?
When you start to live set apart for God, others will be drawn to God.
Dear Lord, help us to live a life that is set apart so that the world around us will see You in us. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
