Standing Out

Exodus 19:5
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

1 Peter 2:9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

Standing out. Setting oneself aside. Daring to be different. A peculiar people.

It's not easy to come away from the masses. To be a red tree among the green. Once you do, you become an instant target for those who hate God.

But we are called to follow Him not the crowd. Listen for His voice and stand out. Be the light that those in darkness need to see.

Will it cost? Yes, friends may be lost, jobs may be lost, wealth may be lost, even lives will be lost.

But consider the glory. Consider that the Great I AM knows you and will reward you. That we are His vessels of honor to be used by Him to help gather in the great harvest.

What is a soul worth?

Stand out. Be Peculiar. Be Strong in the Lord.
