THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Sometimes, when I talk about Jesus, others look at me like I'm crazy!

I can tell what they are thinking:

You're one taco short of a fiesta platter,
You're a few cards short of a deck,
You're two fries short of a Happy Meal,
You're as crazy as a monkey on a tricycle!

Acts 26:24-25
24 And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice,
Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad.
25 But he said, I am not mad, most noble Festus; but speak forth the words of truth and soberness.
KJV

Ya gotta admit, to the WORLD, we Christians DO sound a little crazy sometimes!

We talk about a baby born of a virgin who is God in flesh.
We talk about a Savior, crucified, died, and rose again to life.
We talk about His blood washing our sins away.
We talk about God, Who created the universe by His WORD.
We talk about His Holy Spirit calling and convicting us of sin;
then convincing us that Jesus is the ONLY way of salvation (John 14:6).
We talk about the fact that when He saved us, He CHANGED us (2Cor 5:17)!
We also say we are looking for Jesus, Who will turn the clouds back and call us up into the atmosphere in a "space walk."

Yup!
We might SOUND crazy to those who do not believe.
But we ain't crazy, we're just SAVED!

The more we study the Bible, the more we are convinced that Jesus is our Creator, Savior and eternal King!
"Much learning" doesn't make us "mad" (crazy), it just makes us SURE!
'Cause the Bible has never been proven wrong - not even in ONE verse!!

The only real "TRUTH" is in and of Jesus Christ.
And, the only "soberness" is knowing Him as LORD!

In that trial, held by King Agrippa and Governor Festus, the roles were REVERSED!
The SANE man was in chains, and the NUTS were running the trial!!

Nope!
I ain't crazy!
I'm just SAVED!

Love ya!
