Topic: Being Different To Make A Difference [Seeds Of Destiny 30 November 2019 Devotional]
You cannot make a difference until you are different
SCRIPTURE: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” – 2 Corinthians 6:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot make a difference until you are different
To be different is to be distinct in quality and nature from the rest.
It has been confirmed that, you cannot make a difference until you are different. And until your nature is different your future can never be different.
As believers in Christ we are called to be different from the rest of the people of the world. The believer is to be markedly different from the unbeliever as light is from darkness. But amazingly, it is now difficult to differentiate a believer from an unbeliever especially in conduct.
The same way an unbeliever cheats in an example, for example, some ‘Christians’ would also cheat. I have heard that most people would prefer to do business with an unbeliever (even someone from the other religion) than to do business with some Christians. What an upside down arrangement!
One day, I was in an aircraft and a man who sat next to me was making a phone call and he said; ‘O yes, I’m speaking to you from Lagos now’ meanwhile we were at the Abuja airport! I was so amazed! The unfortunate thing is that Christians are doing the same thing – lying up and down. The question is, what kind of salvation did you receive that didn’t change your character when you “gave” your life to Him?
Beloved, that it is popular does not make it proper. That the whole world is doing it does not make it right either. The standard of God remains sure.
Please be different in order to have a different destiny in this sinking world.
You shall make it, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: You cannot make a difference until you are different.
- Ensure that you make the word of God your standard not man.
- Determine to be clearly different in character from unbelievers or lukewarm Christians

PRAYER: Lord, I ask for forgiveness in any area I conformed to the world’s system or compromised the Kingdom principles in time past. I make demands for Your Grace to be clearly different from the world. Help me to come out clearly for You Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
