Part 1: Just How Different?

It’s not easy being different. Many of us learn that truth at an early age. Perhaps you showed up to school wearing clothes that others made fun of, or maybe you made the move from another country or state, and found out you didn’t sound like the others when you talked. Often when we discover that we are different, we set to work to “fix” whatever it is that makes us different. Then we meet Jesus, and see how different He was, and learn that He calls us to be different too. This week, we will see that Jesus calls us to be different, because without being different we will have a hard time making a difference.
