Break Out of the Mold
3 John 1:11
Sometimes people in the world want us to conform to their image. The word conform means “to be similar in form or character; to behave in accordance with prevailing modes or customs.”
Romans 12:2 says, Do not be conformed to this world…. And 3 John 1:11 says not to imitate what is evil, but to imitate the good things of God.
People will always try to fit us into their mold, partly due to their own insecurity. It makes them feel better about what they are doing if they can get someone else to do it too. Very few people have the ability to be who they are and let everybody else be who they are.
Can you imagine how nice the world would be if we would all do that? If each person would be secure in who he is and let others be who they are? Then we would not try to conform and be imitations of each other.
I want to encourage you today to believe you can be an imitator of Christ and break out of the world’s mold!
Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, keep me from falling into the trap of conforming to the world’s mold. Help me imitate good and live like Christ.
