The Bible calls Christians to be weird. There. I said it. The Bible wants you, if you truly consider yourself to be a follower of Christ to be weird. You have to be out of step with the world. In fact, you have to live in your own world if you want to truly walk with Christ. God calls Christians to be his ‘peculiar’ people. We are to take God’s word and let it take root, grow, and bring forth fruit from our heart. When we let the world and its worries get in the way, they choke the seeds of Truth in us. Similarly, Jesus encourages us to overcome the world just as he did. True Christianity is all about living your life in such a way that it is different from the world at large. Otherwise, if people can’t see the difference between your life and unbelievers’ lives, why even bother to call yourself a Christian? I know this sounds harsh but living in the Light and following the Way is all about making hard choices. Indeed, Jesus Himself said that he brings a sword. The truth may heal but it also divides the world between believers and unbelievers.
