Romans 12:2 KJV
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
1 Peter 2:9 KJV
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
A Real Christian is an odd number anyway. He feels supreme love for One that he’s never seen; Talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see; Expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another; Empties himself in order to be full; Admits that he is wrong so that he can be declared right; Goes down in order to get up; Is the strongest when he’s the weakest; Richest when he’s the poorest; Happiest when he feels the worst; He dies so he can live; Forsakes in order to have; Gives away so he can keep; Sees the invisible, Hears the inaudible, and Knows that which passes understanding. (A.W. Tozer)
