Today we will be considering “Eccentric Christians” are an eccentric Christian or a conventional Christian? Someone is yet to comprehend what am talking about. As children of God “our hope is and help is in the Name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth,” anything aside this is a huge failure.

Aside the Spirit of God in man, man is dead. It is Spirit that quickens our mortal bodies and makes it alive in Christ though dead in sin (Rom 8:10-11). The Spirit of God give life to your mortal body no matter how mangled, or deformed, or emaciated, or disease-ridden, and He is going to make it so strong, so healthy, so beautiful, that when you see it, I will say “you are like the broad blue sky on a bright summer day. You are like a splendor of a million stars against the black night of space. Your radiance is like the sun; yes in you I see the grandeur of the glory of Christ who made you, redeemed you and raised, and glorified you with His glory forever and ever.

The Spirit guides you and make you to conquer fear and makes you feel secure (Eph 1:13-14). The Spirit fills us with joy instead of us turning to alcohol for a happy hour. We all wants to be happy but there is a problem “the days are evil”(Eph 15-18).

Where do you turn to when the days are evil? When you are frightened or discourage or depressed or anxious? Paul pleads with us “don’t turn to alcohol: turn to the Spirit. Anything of value that alcohol can bring you, God the Holy Spirit can bring more. It is the Spirit of God that helps us to die and make alive (1Pet 4:14). How? Because the Spirit of God will give you defense in hour of your temptation and trials, He will give you glimpses of glory and cause you to magnify Christ even in the face of death, courage which never thought was possible will be yours. The Spirit of glory will rest upon you. (2 Tim 4:16-17). So never see anything thing bigger than God. God is bigger than the biggest, lager than the largest.

Is someone excited what grace can do in a man’s life. We receive grace with the help of the Holy Spirit and that grace will keep us through if we allow the Spirit of God to rest in us forever. The Holy Spirit is God. The person who indwells us, leads us, and purify us is on one less than the God, the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 2:10-12). Will write full on this soonest. Watch out.

Is someone still on the eccentric part? You need not be, the God you serve and call upon is greater and higher than any other gods, so be bold for Christ don’t feel odd, don’t let your standard be set by the world rather the Bible.

Look up and make Christ rejoice in you, come along for more: 

Isaiah 40:1-41:20, Psalm 116:8-14, Proverbs 24:1-2, Ephesians 3:1-21

“Eccentric” Christians

God is enthroned above the circle of the earth; its inhabitants are like grasshoppers.—Isaiah 40:22

The man-centered focus that is creeping into today’s church must be resisted at all costs. Such matters as disciplining children, dealing with marital problems, and establishing proper priorities should be addressed also, but we must be careful that “market forces” do not mold our theology.

It could be argued that our problems are so acute because we are deficient in our knowledge of God. The context in which we think and feel is so limited that it is no wonder our souls feel stifled and claustrophobic. One preacher describes our condition in this way: “We are like Peter trying to walk on the water but becoming so engrossed in the winds and the waves that we lose sight of the all-sufficient Christ who is right there beside us. The immediate environment has blotted out the sense of the eternal.”

This is why I have chosen today’s reading from the magnificent book of Isaiah. The prophet does what a doctor would do upon visiting a patient with a minor sickness and finding the windows shut fast and the room lacking in oxygen. He would throw open the windows and invite the patient to inhale the purer air. “Take a deep breath of the oxygen of the Spirit,” Isaiah is saying in effect. “See how great and powerful God is. Set your problems in the context of His omnipotence.”

We become like the thing we focus on. If we center on man rather than God, then we ought not be surprised if we finish up off center—eccentric.

Prayer

O God, save me from being an off-center Christian and thus an eccentric Christian—the true meaning of that term. May my primary focus be always on You. Grant it, dear Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

2Co 4:13-18; Heb 3:1; 12:2; Ps 141:8

What was Paul’s focus?

What is the exhortation of the writer of Hebrews?

Is someone still focusing on changelings and problems that surround you rather looking up to Christ the author and finisher of our faith (Heb 12:2).

Beloved, since I have learnt to this am no longer move or threatened by the things that comes my way. Keep looking unto Jesus other than man then everything will fall into place for you.

But if you fail to do that you will look exactly like what you concentrate your time looking at (Prov 23:7).  The popular saying it is better to be God-Eccentric rather than Ego-(Man) eccentric.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
