1 Peter 1:23 – Because you have been born again – not of perishable seed but of imperishable – through the living and eternal word of God.
Lord Jesus, I should be different in this world. I should stand out in this world of lovelessness. I should stand out in this world of selfishness. Without me even saying a word people should know that I’m yours and you’re mine. But do they? Can they see that I’m different? Do I stand out in this world? Sadly, they often can’t tell that I’m yours. In fact, when I tell them they might even be surprised because of the way that I talk and the way that I act. Lord Jesus, forgive me. Remind me that I have been born again of the imperishable seed of God’s Word. I am different. My rebirth by your Word makes me different. Forgive me and help me to stand out as a light in this dark world. Amen.
