Rebels are often seen as people who do bad things. But what if we could all be rebels – rebels for good, rebels for change, rebels for God.
Sometimes going outside of the traditions and expectations of society is important. For example, Martin Luther King Jnr would be considered a rebel and he had an amazing impact on equal rights.
So what are you going to do to make a difference?
Romans 12: 1-8
1 Dear friends, God is good. So I beg you to offer your bodies to him as a living sacrifice, pure and pleasing. That’s the most sensible way to serve God. 2 Do not conform to this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to God.
3 I realize how kind God has been to me, and so I tell each of you not to think you are better than you really are. Use good sense and measure yourself by the amount of faith that God has given you. 4 A body is made up of many parts, and each of them has its own use. 5 That’s how it is with us. There are many of us, but we each are part of the body of Christ, as well as part of one another.
6 God has also given each of us different gifts to use. If we can prophesy, we should do it according to the amount of faith we have. 7 If we can serve others, we should serve. If we can teach, we should teach. 8 If we can encourage others, we should encourage them. If we can give, we should be generous. If we are leaders, we should do our best. If we are good to others, we should do it cheerfully.
