Are You Different?

It’s your difference that gets noticed. History does not remember the common, only the different. The difference is what’s celebrated, not the ordinary.

Uncommon believers are not like everyone else.

They are different.

They are unique.

They are remnant.

The Remnant is those remaining after everyone else has given up and quit. They are those that remain. The Remnant is uncommon.

No one wants to be common, but so many are. It is not what’s common about you that makes a difference; it is what’s uncommon about you. History remembers the uncommon.

Joshua and Caleb were different than the others called to spy out the Promised Land. They had a different spirit. David was not like his fearful brothers when encountering Goliath. David heard different. Elisha was not like the other prophets. He wanted a double portion of Elijah’s anointing. People do not take note of your common traits, but your uncommon traits.

To be common means to be average or ordinary, and to have no special distinction or quality. The common person is not exceptional in any way. He lacks any special distinction, rank, or status.

Uncommon believers are different. They are not like anyone else and carry distinguishing marks that are visible to all. In the midst of spiritual warfare, they are ready to war. When it comes time to possess the land, they are well able. We can learn much about the uncommon traits of remnant believers.

  • The uncommon do not conform to the same pattern as everyone else.
  • People draw toward the uncommon. David was a giant killer. His difference drew those in debt, distressed, and discontent to a cave.
  • People are rewarded for their differences. Peter was a professional fisherman that had caught nothing all night. As an uncommon believer, he was willing to try again when instructed by Christ.

“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” (Romans 12:2). It’s your difference that gets notice. It’s your difference that shines light in a dark world.
