Being weird has it's benefits, no doubt. Imagine if the world was filled with normal people in a normal environment. Normal being defined as non-weird. Imagine a normal probability distribution(for the maths people), if there were no outliers, ugh! You'll NEVER, mark my words, NEVER change the world if you stay normal. Ever.

Albert Einstein was a weirdo. Guess what, he changed the world!
Isaac Newton too. Guess what, he changed the world!
And I believe that Jesus too is.. The hated ones were His friends, and the desert was his bed. He was despised, never truly loved; all the affection in the world for Him was because they wanted something, and then.. they crucified Him.

So I must be weird; there is no other way. No turning back. I must be hated by the world as it is, despised, never loved; and then crucified for Him on the cross He has provided for me.

I have decided, to follow Jesus
No one go with me, still I will follow
The cross before me, the world behind me
No turning back, no turning back.

Traitor. Deceiver. Betrayer.

Luke 22:48
Betrayest thou the Son of Man with a kiss?

The kisses of an enemy are deceitful." Let me be on my guard when the world puts on a loving face, for it will, if possible, betray me as it did my Master, with a kiss. Whenever a man is about to stab religion, he usually professes very great reverence for it. Let me beware of the sleek-faced hypocrisy which is armour-bearer to heresy and infidelity. Knowing the deceivableness of unrighteousness, let me be wise as a serpent to detect and avoid the designs of the enemy. The young man, void of understanding, was led astray by the kiss of the strange woman: may my soul be so graciously instructed all this day, that "the much fair speech" of the world may have no effect upon me. Holy Spirit, let me not, a poor frail son of man, be betrayed with a kiss! But what if I should be guilty of the same accursed sin as Judas, that son of perdition? I have been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus; I am a member of His visible Church; I sit at the communion table: all these are so many kisses of my lips. AM I sincere in them? If not, I am a base traitor. Do I live in the world as carelessly as others do, and yet make a profession of being a follower of Jesus? Then I must expose religion to ridicule, and lead men to speak evil of the holy name by which I am called. Surely if I act thus inconsistently I am a Judas, and it were better for me that I had never been born. Dare I hope that I am clear in this matter? Then, O Lord, keep me so. O Lord, make me sincere and true. Preserve me from every false way. Never let me betray my Saviour. I do love Thee, Jesus, and though I often grieve Thee, yet I would desire to abide faithful even unto death. O God, forbid that I should be a high-soaring professor, and then fall at last into the lake of fire, because I betrayed my Master with a kiss. - Charles H. Spurgeon

Note to self: Liar, liar make sure your pants won't catch a fire, you will soon find out that it will so be if you are careless with your heart. Get me the armour of God! Ready to the battle positions!

Abide in Me

All for Love the Father gave,
for only Love could make a way
All for Love, the Heavens cried
for Love was crucified

How many times have I broken your heart
still you forgive, if only I ask
How many times have you heard me pray
Draw near to me

Everything I need is you
my beginning my forever
Everything I need is you

Let me sing all for Love
I will join the angels' song
ever holy is the Lord
King of glory King of all

How many times have I broken your heart
still you forgive, if only I ask
How many times have you heard me pray
Draw near to me

Everything I need is you
my beginning my forever
Everything I need is you

All for Love the Saviour prayed
Abba Father have Your way
though they know not what they do
let the cross draw men to You

John 15:4
Abide in Me.

Communion with Christ is a certain cure for every ill. Whether it be the wormwood of woe, or the cloying surfeit of earthly delight, close fellowship with the Lord Jesus will take bitterness from the one, and satiety from the other. Live near to Jesus, Christian, and it is matter of secondary importance whether thou livest on the mountain of honour or in the valley of humiliation. Living near to Jesus, thou art covered with the wings of God, and underneath thee are the everlasting arms. Let nothing keep thee from that hallowed intercourse, which is the choice privilege of a soul wedded to THE WELL-BELOVED. Be not content with an interview now and then, but seek always to retain His company, for only in His presence hast thou either comfort or safety. Jesus should not be unto us a friend who calls upon us now and then, but one with whom we walk evermore. Thou hast a difficult road before thee: see, O traveller to heaven, that thou go not without thy guide. Thou hast to pass through the fiery furnace; enter it not unless, like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, thou hast the Son of God to be thy companion. Thou hast to storm the Jericho of thine own corruptions: attempt not the warfare until, like Joshua, thou hast seen the Captain of the Lord's host, with His sword drawn in His hand. Thou art to meet the Esau of thy many temptations: meet him not until at Jabbok's brook thou hast laid hold upon the angel, and prevailed. In every case, in every condition, thou wilt need Jesus; but most of all, when the iron gates of death shall open to thee. Keep thou close to thy soul's Husband, lean thy head upon His bosom, ask to be refreshed with the spiced wine of His pomegranate, and thou shalt be found of Him at the last, without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing. Seeing thou hast lived with Him, and lived in Him here, thou shalt abide with Him for ever. -Charles Spurgeon

Spirit descend.

Matthew 3:16
He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove.

descended upon the LORD like a dove. And He so also descends upon us, children of the Father, producing the character like that of the blessed redeemer, Jesus. A dove resembles a peaceful picture, patience in affliction, harmlessness; it cannot inflict damage, only receiving it. Likewise I pray LORD, may my character be like that, and yet, in bearing with pain and sorrows which you are infinitely familiar with, I can be a stalwart, adamant, restitute, and founded soldier of Christ by the grace which you have so freely dispensed and the Truth and Your proceeding word and all your fullness. Amen.

An empty Vessel.

an empty vessel. The fuller it becomes, the deeper it sinks. The greater the success put in my hands by Him, the more I should be on my knees. The substance ought to be filled in my empty vessel is not light-weighted conceitedness, but dense humility.

Verily, no true success I obtain is by me, but Christ alone, no truly valuable success in my hands has not been on my knees.. What I do, I do not on my own, but what I do, I do in Christ, for it is His Spirit in me. This is one of the unsearchable riches of Christ revealed to me today. Bless the LORD.
