"Embrace the Weirdness" - Week Three (Acts 14:19-20)

May 12, 2019| Kyle Brenon | Acts 14:19-20

This week we are continuing in our new sermon series, “Embracing the Weirdness.” For the past two weeks, we have been drawing our attention to the fact that obedience to God is… well, pretty WEIRD.  

We have seen that we are often willing to follow God in the things that keep us from standing out, but when our obedience to Him makes us look weird, we tend to draw the line. Even convincing ourselves that God would never ask us to do anything that would make us look weird, let alone actually BE weird. Oh, but He does!!!

This week we continue with week 2 of our new sermon series, “Embrace the Weirdness!” When we surrender our lives to Christ, we give up the rights to self. Not just some of our rights to self, but all of them. This means everything we do, from the day we first trust Him to the day we see Him face to face, should be done for His kingdom and for His glory. We have been bought at a price!

More often than we realize, God calls us to do things that defy conventional wisdom. Things that appear to be counterproductive to our own comfort, our own plans, and even our self-preservation. 

In Acts chapter 16 we see an incredible example of this as Paul and Silas choose to allow God to use them to reach the very jailer that held them captive. Rather than walking free, they gave up their right to themselves so Christ might be glorified through them. 

Is our desire for obedience and for the kingdom of God to increase, greater than our desire for self? What true freedom Paul and Silas must have known to make such a bold move!

Do you ever feel like you just don’t fit in? I know that is an unfair question. If we are being honest, every one of us has to answer “yes.” At some point in our lives all of us feel like we don’t belong. By nature, we have a pretty strong desire to be part of the “group.” Who doesn’t want to be accepted? This in itself is not a problem, but it becomes a problem when our desire to fit in outweighs our desire to be obedient to God!
