Question: who are the we? The we are Born Again Christian who have accepted Jesus Christ as his or her personal Savior. Essentially, one becomes spiritually ” reborn” at that point. escaping spiritual death and receiving eternal life.. ( see John 3:3-7 )
- We are The Body of Christ , Ephesians 1:22-23
- We are Heirs , And if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:29
- We are a chosen generation,
- royal priesthood,
- an holy nation,
- a peculiar people ……….. 1 Peter 2:9
Therefore there is no need for christians conforming to the standards of the world. We are not normal. Do not try to be like worldly people. All born again believers know what it is like to be of the world. Yes, that is right! Before your conversion you were a normal person.
Norm: conforming to the standard, or the common type.
If you are a christian saved by the grace of God, then the definition of normal do not apply to you.
You are Not Normal. I know !!!, let me explain what I mean. The Word of God says in Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
When you are normal, you are conforming to the standards set by some unknown person other than God.
The world feel there is no need to follow godly principles anymore. The world’s thoughts and standards does not please God at all.
First step to become not normal
- Do not conform to this world.
- Be transformed
- By the renewing of your mind
Why do you need to do this?
- Prove what is the good
- And Acceptable
- Perfect will of God
Being Not Normal pleases God. Christians are not perfect in themselves but we follow Jesus teaching which is perfect. Now we are perfect in Christ because of his grace.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is heaven is perfect. Mathew 5:48
So, stop trying to blend in with normal people, you are Not Normal anymore.
