As disciples of Christ, we are called to be a peculiar people. A city set on a hill CANNOT be hidden. We are called to rise above the culture and be shining lights for Christ in the darkness. Let us not be afraid to take a stand for truth as we see the culture shift, and those around us, even our own family, choosing to change and blend in with the culture. Let’s love them as Christ loves the Church, and show them the true character of God.
“Rise above it! Rise above the culture and what they expect of you, My beloved! Rise above the culture and its expectations. I have not called you to go with the flow of the culture as it changes. I have called you to be in the world, not of it. I have called you to be different, a peculiar people. You cannot make a difference, you cannot BE the difference this world needs if you are just like them. I have called you to stand out. You are special. You are different. You are made in My image. The world does not understand you because you are called to be like Me. They think they are right, but they are deceived. I have called you, My prized creation, to live among them, to be among them, even though you wish to leave this world, because I want you to show them Who I am. I want you to be Me to them. Act just like Me. Show them how I would love them. Show them how I cherish them and how I long to be with them. Let them know that I’m the One they long for, not the fleshly things they live for. Show them how deeply I love them and cause them to want to run after Me. It’s for this purpose that I have you on the Earth, My beloved. There are many that I’m waiting on to come into My Kingdom. It’s for this purpose that I have you here. Don’t faint and don’t lose heart in doing good, My beloved, for in due time you will reap if you do not grow weary. What a harvest it will be!!! Stand on My Word and do not give into the beliefs, philosophies and changes in the culture. You will rejoice and be glad you did on the day that you stand before Me!!!”
