I received a text this morning from one of my best friends that said, “you know, Joe – I don’t want to be like all the other guys – I want to be set apart, different.” That’s a powerful statement! Something I desire for myself as well.
Living the Christian life is not about always doing the easy thing. It’s not about our comfort or about always getting our way. As followers of Christ, we are called to be set apart, to shine, to make a difference, to live out our faith in Jesus.
I needed this reminder today – how about you?
Here’s one of my favorite video clips from Francis Chan dealing with this same topic.
