As a child of the 90s one the songs that always takes me back to Bogue Chitto High School is Crazy by Seal. Some of you may remember it, some of our younger audience may have no idea about the song, or Seal, or even the 90s!
Today as I was reading our text for this morning, that song was running through my head. Listen to what happens to Paul in Acts 26: 24-25:
And as he was saying these things in his defense, Festus said with a loud voice, “Paul, you are out of your mind; your great learning is driving you out of your mind.” But Paul said, “I am not out of my mind, most excellent Festus, but I am speaking true and rational words.
And Paul says, nope. I’m not. I’m in my right mind. I am speaking true and rational words.
He basically goes on to say; I just love Jesus, and He has changed me. And that makes me, in this world, look and act a little crazy.
And so should we. We should look and act a little crazy. We shouldn’t be like the world. We shouldn’t be like the culture. We should be different. We should act different. We should never become so much like the that we aren’t noticed.
Today, as believers, we have to be different. We do. If there is no difference between us and the world, then something is wrong.
And if they think we are crazy, that’s ok. Really. It’s ok. We don’t live for their approval, we live for God’s approval.
They thought Paul was crazy. Nope, he just loved and was changed by Jesus. Today, I hope they think the same thing about each of us.
Let’s act a little crazy today.
