I have completely and truly fallen in love with this song. It’s just incredibly amazing and puts so many things into a perspective I didn’t really think about before.
I mean, really. Most of us, our nature as human beings, is the need to feel we “fit in” with the crowd. To just be part of the mass, not feel left out, or be looked at as a the “freak”. But Jesus has called us to be so much more than that; to stand out. To be the ones with the initiative to start something new, with the courage to do things maybe others will look at as strange, but that we know in our hearts will reap the everlasting fruit.
The Lord has called us to be different after all. We’re NOT supposed to be part of the crowd, we’re called to be something more than that–those people who will change lives and do things that will last forever. Like David Livingstone wrote, “I have found that I have no unusual endowments of intellect. But this day I resolve that I will be an uncommon Christian!”
Let’s be that uncommon Christian! Let’s not be afraid to stand out!
