Wednesday, January 14th, 2015. Today's cherished nugget
from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
“I suppose that if you had asked the men in Elijah’s time
what kind of man he was, they would have said, ‘He is very peculiar.’ The king
would say, ‘I hate him.’ Jezebel did not like him; the whole royal court didn’t
like him, and a great many of the nominal good people didn’t like him; he was
too radical. Be willing to be one of Christ’s peculiar people, no matter what
men may say of you” (D. L. Moody).
Because the world has a lot of strange folks, many times
they are the norm. We must be willing to be "strange," to stand out,
to make a difference. For us to accomplish the means of making a difference,
let us follow the advice of the apostle Paul in Romans 12:2: “Be not conformed
to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may
prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
God, let us be the face for You that this world
In GOD we Trust!
