I love the opening quote that T.J. uses.
Edgar Allan Poe – “I was never really insane, except on occasions where my heart was touched.”
Have you ever done something stupid in the name of something you love?
I think I can probably guess the answer.
I remember being young and stupid.
Well, I’m only 23, so I guess I remember being younger and stupider.
I remember doing stupid things in my first serious relationship. Never anything all that crazy….but stupid nonetheless. I just was not prepared for the wave of feelings that continued to crash over me. I did not know what to do with myself.
But now I like to think I am a little older and wiser.
But is that necessarily the answer?
I remember reading a story about a group consisting of members of th early church.
It was after Christ’s Resurrection.
They were all together, worshipping Him.
And the strangest thing happened…the Holy Spirit began to move.
People that were observing thought these individuals had knocked back a few too many drinks. They thought these people were acting foolish.
And I’m not sure if I would have thought any differently.
I mean, they were working what sounded like gibberish to the untrained ear.
That were dancing and carrying on.
They didn’t care what they looked lie tI anyone else.
They were moving in a Presence that made it hard to resist.
Are we of the same mind?
I like to think that I am an individual that doesn’t necessarily care what another thinks of me.
But that might be just a dream.
No, I don’t mean go streaking anywhere with “Jesus” written across your chest.
And I do not necessarily mean go stand on a street corner with some kind of sign.
But there are plenty of opportunities for an individual to make a statement for God that is not considered “normal”.
You never know….it might be fun…and it might get someone’s attention.
