1 Peter 4:4,7
4-Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: 7-But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
The first and most important thing that sets a believer apart from some of the people they know is their salvation: THEY ARE SAVED, children of God, with a heavenly address in eternity.
Fashion and style have never been my strong suit. Give me sweatpants, a tee shirt & tennis shoes any day 😉. However, I understand there are times to be fashionably conscious.
What’s my point today, you may ask? Don’t follow TRENDS — BE THE TREND! Live for God as you enjoy the life you have on earth in preparation for the life you will have in heaven. Choosing a way of life that differs from what the world offers will cause you to stand out, sometimes in very uncomfortable ways.
But isn’t that what a child of God should do — stand out from the world?
Christians are not better than other people! We are simply called to move and operate in life differently. Otherwise, why proclaim the divine power found in salvation when you look and act like unsaved people?
Hypocrisy doesn’t draw lost people; it REPELS them and leaves a stench in God’s nostrils!
So believer, don’t follow trends — Be the trendsetter for Christ 🙏
