BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 6 – 7; 1 Corinthians 6 -7
Jesus was different in His days. His life and ministry were devoted to teaching new ways of life based on God’s peerless love and leading to heaven. The Pharisees, Saducees and teachers of the law said eye for an eye, but Jesus said love your enemies and bless those who despitefully use you. Beloved, you too must be different from the world.
First, you need to know and appreciate your identity in Christ.1 Peter 2:9 affirms that you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Why should you be different? The first reason is that God commanded it. He said you should not love the world and the things of the world. God’s word says that the love of the world is enmity with Him. The truth is that the world is separated from God and lacks the knowledge of God.
As a believer, you know Christ and separating yourself from the world and being different will keep you from being polluted. Ephesians 4:17-18 underscores this point: This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.”
In Babylon, Daniel purposed in his heart to be different. He refused to take the sumptuous meal and the exotic wines on the table of the heathen king, Nebuchadnezzar. He knew that food offered to idols would defile him. Joseph chose to be different by saying no and fleeing from seductive Mrs Potiphar.

Beloved, for you to be different in these last days, you must put off the old self and put on the new self (2 Peter 1:4). In Leviticus 18:2-4, God warned the children of Israel not to do after the doings of the land of Canaan nor walk in their ordinances. He added in Leviticus 19:2. “Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.”
