Are you crazy?

Do you spend your life longing for the day that it will end? Do you spend time pointing to another man?

Do you find hope in dying with promises unseen? Do you want to learn ways better than everything you were taught to be?

That just sounds crazy.... Or does it?

Do you boast about filthy rags made clean? Do you see the glory in your Saviour's suffering?

Do you live your daily life trusting Him for everything? Do you only take a step when you feel Him leading you?

Isn't that crazy?
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe... For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength. (1 Corinthians 1:18-21, 25)

I want to be one of the craziest people around....
(Thank you, MercyMe, for reminding me about being crazy)
