Different than the World – MLJ

Nominal parents produce nominal kids.

The glory of the gospel is that when the Church is absolutely different from the world, she invariably attracts it. It is then that the world is made to listen to her message, though it may hate it at first. That is how revival comes.

That must also be true of us as individuals. It should not be our ambition to be as much like everybody else as we can, though we happen to be Christian, but rather to be as different from everybody who is not a Christian as we can possibly be. Our ambition should be to be like Christ, the more like Him the better. And the more like Him we become, the more useful to the world we will be.  Martin Lloyd Jones

Being like Christ will make us different than the world. Let us live intentionally; living the kingdom life in a world bent on self-fulfillment.
