Beloved, why do you find it strange when you are not accepted by the world and those around you?
I set my call upon your life. Come out from the midst and be Holy. Set apart for Me. Set apart to be with Me. Set apart that My glory may shine, not only on you, but through you.
You are different.
I never intended that you would fit in, but that you would stand out and stand up for righteousness and truth. You are My plumb line. I called you as one to set the standards for others to follow. Do not be led around by the desires of the world, or follow as mere sheep. Stand up for My Kingdom of light, life and truth.
(NIV) John 15: 18-20
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.
(NIV) 1 John 2: 15-17
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
(NIV) 1 John 3: 1-3
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
