I John 3: 23 ” And this is His command: to believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as He commanded us.”

Does the world see you as different?  The King James Version of the Bible actually calls Believers “peculiar”  in I Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”  But what makes us distinctive from the rest of the world?  It’s the command to submit ourselves one to another in love and strive for unity.  For Jesus said in John 13:34-35, “A new command I give you: Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.”  We have been called to stand out from the world…to be a peculiar people…people that don’t take offense, love unconditionally, and always work towards unity.
