I think there are many of us sitting on the fence . . . trying to decide if we are going to jump off.
If you are like me, you know that God is calling you to live different, spend different, act different. Yet, we are looking around waiting on someone else to do it first.
By nature, we just want to fit in. We don’t want to stand out. We don’t want to be obvious. We want to blend in.
However, God has called us to shine. When you shine, you will stand out. When you choose to live the way God has commanded us too we are going to look different.
At first, this may feel lonely, awkward, embarrassing and even strange. Actually, those feelings might not ever change or go away. I think when I am being the most obedient, I have felt the loneliest. Following God means going against the ways of the world. That can be lonely and it can be disheartening. But soon you will find that others who are longing to live the way God has commanded will begin to show up. God is faithful in providing others to do this life with and these will become the most precious of friendships.
Maybe God is calling you to be one who jumps off the fence.
How are you responding to that call?
