A 1969 VW Camper. Being a distinctive follower of Jesus is opposed by both the secular and Christian culture.

Occasionally I see an old VW Camper like the one I used to drive. It is very distinctive and is not seen very often because most people trade their car for another one every 5 years or so. It definitely stands out as something we may long for but the new technology invented almost daily steals away our longing to drive such a distinctive vehicle without the newest technology.

Jesus and a true follower are also distinctive today. Colossians 2:8 speaks loudly that we are to be alert to not being taken captive by the empty and misguided data we are fed today. So much sounds right and good but this is a reason we must know what God says about life and what really matters.

An alive relationship with God where we really do hear him tell us how to live from his perspective is so refreshing but contrary to most of what vies for our attention.

What keeps you from standing out from others when you know what God expects of you? How can you begin to live more distinctively in the cultures that speak a language other than what God says in the Word?
