So, what makes us so different?!? We are to shine as lights in the world...so what would make us true lights to the world? There are millions of people in the world that live very good lives. In fact their behaviors are as righteous as you can get. Example: In Norway, (and in other places as well) it is normal to park your stroller outside of the store you are about to shop in and then go in and shop while your baby sleeps in the stroller! Talk about good behavior being normal!! It is normal and typical behavior to not steal, kill or harm in anyway. SO, then does good and "righteous" behavior make a person stand out? Even here in the US most people try and live good lives and be good citizens...so if the church touts and preaches good behavior as the light we are to be shining...then it is a light that shines among many other lights that are just as bright!! So, again, what would make Christians stand out...as Christ stood out (Christian means "little Christ")...to the world? Christ attracted people as moths to a flame...yet, sadly, we are not doing that. Oh, yes, there are still some coming to Christ despite our dimness...and all of our divisions...and even how oppressive and indifferent the church has been to all the pain that is all around it. But this is ONLY because of God's grace... What is that thing that we are missing???? How are we missing the mark??
