When we change the concentration of one of the reactants, zero, first and second reactions will all respond differently as to how much product is subsequently formed. The reaction order can tell us how impactful a certain reactant is.
No matter how we change the concentration of the zero order reactant, the reaction rate will not change. For a first order equation, the rate will linearly change when we change the reactant. For a second order when we change the reactant, it will change by the square of the reactant change.
The differences are just the effect that the concentration of one reactant has on the overall reactant rate, that is, whether or not a change in concentration will have no effect on the rate, have a linear change, or cause a squared rate of change
