Different by Design
Discovering That a Godly Life Is Still a Good Life
by Cary Schmidt
The Christian life is to be a condition of the heart that shows up in a lifestyle. Throughout Scripture, God commands us to keep a right heart with Him and to live a lifestyle that pleases Him. Yet, many Christians today seem to believe, “God doesn’t care what I do, so long as my heart is right on the inside!”
This personal Bible study reveals God’s heart for a biblical lifestyle. In it, you will be challenged not to separate “who you are” from “how you behave.” You will be admonished to live very differently from the world and from today’s “pop-culture.”
Each and every page of this study will compel you to “walk worthy”—to live in a way that outwardly honors the Lord—to allow your relationship with Christ to flow into every act, every word, every thought, every deed, and every attitude of life.
“Have it your way” Christianity is empty, frustrating, self-centered, fruitless, and pointless. God teaches us in His Word that we are to be different—by His design! This study will remind you that a godly life is a different life, and that God’s way of living is still the best way!
