Daily Nugget

     Thursday, November 14th. Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill

What Is the Difference …
—Between the atheist who would not dream of financially supporting the church and the Christian who will not financially support the Lord’s church?
—Between the skeptic who does not believe the Bible and the negligent Christian who never reads it?
—Between those who do not believe in Bible classes and those who choose never to attend a class?
—Between the atheist who does nothing to build up the Lord’s church and the Christian who finds fault with others but does nothing himself?
—Between a man of the world and a person in the church who lives like a man in the world?
—Between a man of the world who lives for self, and a person in the church building who lives for self, not God?
These are tough questions for Christians who live in a tough world. The fact is that Christians make no difference until they are different.

Again, what’s the difference? (From Treasury of Biblical Illustrations)

We are to be the salt and light in a world of confusion. When we are not distinguishable from the rest of the world, what can they see that would draw them to God, our heavenly Father?  The Apostle Peter reminds us: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” (1 Peter 2:9).

Let us rise up to be that peculiar people--not in a weird  way, but as that champion for God. Jesus died for you; Will you live for Him?            

God, Live through us to make a difference to our world today. Amen
Bro Bill Scroggs
