Yes, I'm Insane, a little overboard, out of my mind, a FANATIC!

"In this world ye shall have tribulations, but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” - John 16:33.

I bring up that scripture first because I simply wanted to highlight on the fact that Christ has overcome the world! Meaning, we as kingdom people are not subjected to any of the world's "norms" or "standards". Which is why in that same scripture Jesus mentions that by being "different" we will have tribulations. Tribulations are not always the gravest of things. They could simply be having people look at you funny, or people thinking you're crazy. Hahaha...hence my title. At these times, you should be OF GOOD CHEER! Because ultimately, that is what you are after; being labeled "insane", or "out of your mind" by the world!

Usually for someone to be qualified as Insane they are considered to have, "lost their mind."
Hahaha, see where I am going with this? God WANTS you to lose your mind!!!

"...Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind..."- Romans 12:2
"And be renewed in the spirit of your mind" - Ephesians 4:23
"Let the mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus"-Philippians 2:5

When you take on a HEAVENLY PERSPECTIVE and begin to think in terms of KINGDOM...people are no doubt going to think you're "insane" or "crazy" or "too extreme"

We are called to walk by FAITH and live a lifestyle of LOVE. We are in this world but not OF it! No wonder they think we're crazy hehehehe =D

When you can turn the other cheek for someone who has wronged you and simply let things go and forgive; that to some could be considered "insane".

When you have a cold and are coughing as evidence and yet you are telling all those around you that I'm not sick because by His stripes I was healed; you may be told you're going a bit "overboard".

When you speak from a position of authority and confront darkness head on with the knowledge that no weapon formed against you shall prosper and nothing shall by any means harm you; yup, a few people will definitely label you "out of your mind" .

When you proclaim that Jesus is the only WAY. That only through Him can you be saved; man, there's no doubt, by the world you'll be classified as a FANATIC!

But remember, even when you get the: they're-crazy looks, or the suit-yourself shrugs, or the are-you-sure-you're-okays...Be of GOOD CHEER! Jesus wasn't "normal" by social standards either =]

So next time someone calls you crazy and says you've "lost your mind" just smile real big and say, Thank you! I've been working at it ( losing your mind that is =]). In fact, I've been waiting for somebody to tell me that.

Hahahahaha =]
