Different Strokes For Different Folks

I was sitting here minding my own business. Well, I had been thinking about what to blog about today. My mind drifted in so many ways then all of a sudden, this song from an old television show entitled “Different Strokes” started playing in my head. Here are the lyrics:

Now, the world don’t move to the beat of just one drum, 
What might be right for you, may not be right for some. 
A man is born, he’s a man of means. 
Then along come two, they got nothing but their jeans. 

But they got, Diff’rent Strokes. 
It takes, Diff’rent Strokes. 
It takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world. 

Everybody’s got a special kind of story 
Everybody finds a way to shine, 
It don’t matter that you got not alot 
So what, 
They’ll have theirs, and you’ll have yours, and I’ll have mine. 
And together we’ll be fine…. 

Because it takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world. 
Yes it does. 
It takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world.

Today, there are many things that people do in the Christian world that many may frown upon. Some have let hip hop into the churches; some use elaborate displays to get their messages across; while some go in and teach the Word of God in simplicity, while others teach with a lot of hype or excitement. To this I say (while I don’t agree with some of these practicesm but who am I?), it takes DIFFERENT STROKES for DIFFERENT FOLKS. What works for some may not work for others. The point is this: GET THE WORD OF GOD OUT SO THAT OTHERS CAN HEAR, BE DRAWN AND BE SAVED. 

I may not teach or preach like  any other person. You may not teach or preach like any other person, but our mission is the same: to teach the word, preach the word, live a holy life and do it so that others can hear/see, be drawn and be saved.

Isn’t that the ultimate goal? It is for me.

No matter what our “Different Stroke” is, we must all point to Yahshua/Jesus because HE is the Savior of the World. He is the WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. NO MAN CAN GET TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH HIM  (YAHSHUA/JESUS). John 14:6

We may preach and teach in different styles and different ways, but we must all point others to YAHSHUA/JESUS. We must all, as Christians, preach and teach the same Gospel.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4King James Version (KJV)

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 

Preach, teach live holy…….We must all do this, no matter our color, socio-economic background, church we attend, or really, our denomination……we MUST all teach, preach and live holy so that others may hear/see and believe in the Savior…..Yahshua/Jesus.

We must tell others about His death, burial and resurretion so that people will believe in whom we teach and preach about. 

So, my way may not be the same as your way, and vice versa, but Let’s Move the World with our different strokes and get the Word of God out to as many as we can.
