Dare to be Different

II Corinthians 6:17

2Co 6:17, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,"

God commands His people to be separate from the world. We are in the world, but we are not of the world. Making the choice to be a committed spiritual Christian involves the matter of separation.

Here again is a term that needs to be fully understood. Some folks believe that separation means living our lives like, for example, the Amish. Others go to the opposite extreme and have no standards of separation at all. Like so many other areas of the Christian life, I believe we should seek to maintain a proper balance.

III. Difference of Separation:

" Daniel's personal separation began with a decision in his heart. " It was his choice, and it is our choice whether we will be spiritual or not! " Will we dare to be different? " Will we choose to come out from among them and be separate? " It is our choice…let's dare to be different!
