Not Nuts Yet, But Praying To Be Soon!

My prayer is that I live radically for Jesus. (My brother pointed out that “radical Christianity” is simply “Biblical normal.”)

I wish I could remember Francis Chan’s exact quote. Chan essentially says that we may want to question ourselves if our lives don’t look absolutely NUTS to non-Christians, and possibly to many Christians.

So part of me wants to love so well, and so insanely, that I look as bizarre as Jesus must have. And the other part of me worries a lot about what other people think.

Thank God for the grace I know He will send, teaching me to someday (soon!?) love a lot more like He does.

This is all we can ask for as we trust him and rest that he is doing a great work in us! Great point, it is just "biblical normal."

If it makes you feel any better, I've always thought you are a little insane. :)
