Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional 17 October 2018 – Separation From the Crowd by Pastor Paul Enenche
TOPIC: Separation From the Crowd
SCRIPTURE: Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 2 Corinthians 6:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Conformity is the foundation for uniformity of calamity; to flow with the crowd is to be lost in the crowd.
Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional 17 October 2018 Message: Sometime ago, I heard the story of a high ranking Christian officer in the Nigerian army. One day, other officers were organizing a party and this high-ranking Christian Officer was invited to be part of it. In the course of the preparation, this Christian officer asked his fellow officers if alcohol would be served in the party and the other officers answered in the affirmative. Then he said, “If alcohol would be served, then I won’t be involved and my money would not be part of it.” Then after some deliberations, they said, “What is the use of even serving alcohol in the first place? We will not serve alcohol in the party. There is no need.’ They told the Christian officer. So, the Christian officer responded, ‘In that case, I will attend the party.’
The lesson from this story is: only one man changed the order of a major event because of solidity of Godly character. You too can change the sinful opinion or attitude of an overwhelming majority with your Godly character if you refuse to join them or compromise.
Beloved, your separation from the crowd guarantees your safety in life. Conformity is the foundation for uniformity of calamity; if you conform to the world, the same calamity that confronts the world will befall you. To flow with the crowd is to be lost in the crowd. That shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
To be the best, you must be yourself. The desire to be like somebody is the reason for so many nobodies. You cannot make a difference in your generation until you are clearly different.
My counsel is, make up your mind to be different from other people.
REMEMBER THIS: Conformity is the foundation for uniformity of calamity; to flow with the crowd is to be lost in the crowd.
