Philippians 3:17 “Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern.” (NKJV)
Philippians 3:17 “Stick with me, friends. Keep track of those you see running this same course, headed for this same goal.”(MSG)
Hebrews 6:12 “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
…From yesterday…
It is always very easy to blend-in, and not to stand-out! Many people have blended into some cultures and behaviours of this world that they can longer figure out who they really are. Perhaps they themselves have forgotten their identity! How sad?
No wonder Paul said:
Romans 12:2 “Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking.” (MSG)
Romans 12:2 “Don’t be like the people of this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to him.”(CEV)
Friend, there is a world culture or mould and the world expect you to fit in and use her own template. The truth, however, is that God expects us to be in the world, but never of the world.
Noah dammed the consequences of standing alone by standing for the truth, and he was the wiser for it. To be outstanding in life we must be ready to endure some loneliness and rejections.
We must never be tricked into compromising our faith; we must stand for Christ. At every temptation, let the world know that your loyalty will always be on the side of Christ, which is the truth!
Always remember Noah, the man that stood his ground against all odds and who finally won the ultimate prize. He survived the same flood that killed others. 
The next patriarch I want us to consider is our father, Father Abraham. The lesson I want us to pick from him are numerous, but I think I’ll like to focus on this particular one, becoming a risk taker.
