On Losing Your Senses

When you do the will and work of God you can expect to be thought of by the sensible to have lost your senses.

When His own people heard of this, they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, “He has lost His senses.” Mark 3:21

If honest, we may be quick to think a young man or woman is somewhat crazy to leave house and home for the mission field when all others seem bent on pledging a fraternity or sorority at the parents’ alma mater.

Normally the call of God puts you in strange places. We think, “Why would anyone want to do that or go there?”

Then the exercise of spiritual gifts can be questioned, only because these new skills may be totally out of character. Short of being thought “possessed” like Jesus was, there may be some questioning of actual ability or motives. Even those closest to us can sell us short, even casting aside sound logic.

Someone sold out for God joins the prestigious club of those doing the will of God. Only those doing the same will understand.
