Are Christians Different?
Recent surveys of Christian behavior versus that of unbelievers have yielded surprising results. In testing Christians likelihood of divorce compared to that of the general public, the stats are identical. Christian in bondage to pornography, still about the same (over 40% of men). They tested those Christians whose tested behavior was of a considerably higher standard and sought the answer as to what made them different. Was it church attendance? Christian music? Nope. There was only one verifiable distinction behind their higher level of holiness and commitment to Christ. Ready? They engaged the Scriptures 4 times a week in some form. Devotions. Bible reading. Memory Verses.
God’s word has power to bring life to us and set us apart as a light to our generation. Let’s open the book and ponder the truth we find so we can put it into practice.
