|One of life’s greatest needs is the need to be accepted and to have a sense of belonging. Due to this strong desire we can easily become manipulated by those around us and culture. As Christians, we must remember no matter how much pressure we face, God is always there to rescue us in our time of need. Instead of living our lives for the approval of others, live your life for the audience of One. The One who gladly accepts, cherishes and calls us His own. God has given us everything we need to challenge “the norm”. We must not conform. We must remember that He has chosen us to be set apart. Walk in confidence that you are accepted by God and you belong to God.
Romans 12:2, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
