Are we just like everyone else?

Philippians 2:13-15

English Standard Version (ESV)

13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
As believers in Christ we are to be different that the world.  We are in it but we have a new home awaiting for us in heaven.  So if you are saved and you know, live like backwards!  Bring heaven to earth.  Love, work without mumbling under your breath, stop grumbling and acts as if the world expects everyone to acts.  The word Christian means follow of Christ, little Christ or imitators of Christ.   So then imitate Christ.  Go and be Jesus wherever you are today…. school, workplace, home, mission field, friend etc.  Go and be Jesus today!
BTW… the only way to be Jesus is to PUT HIM ON and be filled with THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!  You can give what you don’t have.

Romans 13:14

English Standard Version (ESV)

14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
