The world is made of people that are generally seen as “normal.” Normal is certainly a subjective term, but it generally describes people who look and act like the majority of those around them.
Normal – like the world
As Christians, we are not to be normal but rather abnormal. Whereas the world lives in and cares about sinful activity, we as Christians should reject sin in every way. The world loves darkness, we love light…the light of Jesus.
In my opinion, one of the most relevant and powerful versus in Scripture come from John 3:19-22, “…the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
The ways of God’s people are different than the ways of the other people of the world. We are to brighten a dark world.
Are you brightening the world around you?
As we follow Jesus, the source of our light, we will illuminate the word in ways never seen before.
So, be brighter and let your light illuminate the minds and hearts of everyone around you!
