It's been a while since I looked at this but to understand the difference you must look at the equations for resistivity and resistance. A good place to start is:

http://www.answers.com/topic/resistivity

Look under the definitions and explanation sections.

Note resistivity is measured in terms of ohms per meter as in a length of wire of given area and resistance is measured in terms of ohms as in a resistor. Also by transposing the resistivity equation we can derive resistance.

Hope this helps.
