You Are an Original in Christ
Originals are worth more than copies. They hold more value because they are the unique first that can never be precisely replicated. This is true of original paintings, sculptures, pieces of art, furniture and other collectables. Replicas or “knock offs” are never as detailed or valuable as the original. Unless limited in production, copies are worth significantly less then the original article. Value is added by the rarity of the piece. “One of a kinds” hold the most value.
What about you? Are you an authentic, genuine and original individual or are you a copy of the latest worldly social, political or media trend? Many people are mirror images of the world around them. They are unable to set themselves apart from the world to take a stand for truth, morality, integrity, honor or justice. They certainly are not able to take a stand for Christ. They simply copy the majority who are shallow and complacent. They settle for mediocrity.  It takes effort to set yourself apart. Bravery is a pre-requiste if you are going to be original and represent a view that may not be popular. It takes commitment to be genuine. It requires honesty and perseverance to be authentic. You are far more valuable to Christ when you are a one of a kind genuine article. You are more than just another face in the crowd. He created you to be a genuine, bright, shining light leading others out of the dark world of auto copy.
"No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.” Luke 11:33
