Today we take time to reflect on a precious verse and a beautiful song. We call it Word & Worship.
OUR WORD for TODAY:
We are not only called to be different, but chosen to be different.
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
So much of the time we as people are working to “fit in” with the crowd; working to look and act like everyone else. Being different doesn’t seem to be so appealing in a world where diversity is chastised and rejected. BUT we need to grasp the fact that we as children of God were chosen, created and designed to be different; to stand apart from the crowd, to shine for His glory. We should desire to stand out, not blend in.
OUR WORSHIP for TODAY: Different – Micah Tyler
What an honor it is to be chosen and set apart by our Heavenly Father; to be called His children and reflect His love to a lost world. We pray this song ignites a fire within you to stand up and be proudly set apart, to be different for the sake of the Lord. Be blessed.
I dont wanna spend my life, stuck in a pattern
I don’t wanna gain this world but lose what matters
So I’m giving up, everything because
I wanna be different
I wanna be changed
‘Til all of me is gone
And all that remains
Is a fire so bright
The whole world can see
That there’s something different
So come and be different in me
