My Insanity is Biblical! :)   Sunday, September 07, 2003

I was reading my Bible when I came across a verse I hadn't really thought of before. Hey, I'm one to act a bit crazy at times, cut up, and act on the side of insanity. Don't feel bad...I enjoy it! :) And now, I can back it up with Scripture! 

II Corinthians 5:13 puts it this way. "For whether we are beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause." That first part says basically, if I'm crazy - it's for the Lord! How cool is that! 

Another version says, "If I acted crazy, I did it for God". And yet another, "For whether we be out of our wit, we are it to God". 

Why do I "go nuts" sometimes at camp? Why do I do some of the things I do - even when I don't want to do them? Verse 14 answers that - It's because of the love of Christ. 

Wanna challenge you this week to get just a bit "crazy" for our Lord. Let's see what happens when we allow God's love to flow through us. Let's see who He can reach when we aren't afraid to step outside of our comfort zone and follow the Savior. 

LET'S GO BANANAS FOR JESUS!
