Making a difference requires us to do things differently

Making a difference requires us to do things differently

“Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” - Galatians 6:9

Have you ever noticed how God often calls us to do things differently?

Oftentimes, it feels paradoxical, counter-cultural, or simply doesn’t make sense.
But the life that Jesus modeled for us was just that. He left heaven to walk an earthly life that started in a manger, he chose unexpected friends, chose an unpopular lifestyle, came to serve, and lived a simple, quiet, and yet perfect life. Jesus was different. What he did was different, how he lived was different and what he calls us to be is...different.

Most of what the world teaches us is backwards from what Jesus taught us. It is the paradox we live in.

We don’t have to try and make sense of it all either because Jesus often didn’t make sense.

We simply need to be faithful.

If we want to make a difference in the lives of those around us, it likely requires us to do things a little different. But we can be confident that a life of abiding in Him, and for Him, is worthy of it all. If you feel like you’re going against the grain, living counter-cultural, or doing things differently out of obedience today, stay faithful. Stay the course. Don’t overthink. Sow the seeds, be a light, and trust God with the harvest.
