A Different Kind of Woman

Elisabeth Elliot stated, "The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman." The Apostle Paul said it this way, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Gal. 3:28) Though all Christians are equal, they are to be unique from the world; "I...beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called..." (Eph.4:1)

Jesus said we are to be the light of the world. In 1 Pet. 2:9, Peter says we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people. Is it that we are more superior than the world? No, but rather we are to be set apart from the sins of the world and be that light that can guide others to Him.

Are you shining bright enough that the world can see you? Can they follow your lead to the Savior? Are you unique from the world or do you just blend in? "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." (Matt. 5:16)
