Enjoy being Different?
Have you ever been considered the odd ball out? Maybe you have been overlooked on more than one occasion. Did you notice people tend to avoid you or forget to ask you to events? If you have answered yes to any of these please continue reading.
Many times, we have been called different, unique, or even “special” by people or groups we did not “fit into”. It was hurtful, and maybe embarrassing at some point. Understand this you were not meant to conform in the shape of others, GOD made you different for a reason. You have—purpose! The times you have been overlooked and talked about was because you were not meant to be a part of the “In Crowd”, you were meant to be a part of the “Kingdom Crowd”!
Yes, you are different! Yes, you choose not to use profanity! Yes, you choose to stop drinking alcohol and smoking! Yes, you choose not to go to night clubs or bars! And yes, you chose to stop fornicating and gossiping with family and coworkers! The choice you chose to make, now makes you an outsider. You are looked upon as different, and its ok!
Now that you are set apart from the “worldly folk”. KJV John 17:16 “they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world”. If some of you are wondering what “worldly folk” is it is a term used to describe a group of people who choose to love and live like the world. NKJV 1st John 2:15-16 “do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but of the world.
It is ok that you are different because—GOD has set you apart! Do you know what is means to be set apart? Once you have the understanding that you will never fit in, it will be easier for you to let go of yourself, and let GOD have his way!
Being set apart is another word for Sanctification. Did you know in the KJV the word sanctify is mentioned 58 times, the word sanctify is mentioned 65 times, and the word sanctification is mentioned 5 times? (Bible Gateway was used to research the findings of the word sanctify.) According to Meriam-Webster Dictionary, the word sanctify means “to set apart to a sacred purpose or to religious use. To make productive of holiness or piety. The fact that the word is mentioned many times in the Bible reveals the importance of sanctification and being set apart. KJV 2nd Thessalonians 2:13 “but we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. KJV John 17: 17 “sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
There are many scriptures in the Bible including Old Testament and New Testament that can be used as a foundation to understand why you are different, and why it is good to be set apart from everyone else! Your purpose is dependent on you walking in your uniqueness! There is a reason you do not fit in, and the reason is you are—SET APART!
