A Jesus Freak isn’t a “freak of nature” but of the supernatural

If you continually follow and obey the living Jesus with all your heart, society will see you as a freak. A Jesus Freak isn’t a freak of nature, but someone who is being radically transformed by the risen Jesus in supernatural ways.

Here’s a freaky Bible verse. “We are fools for Christ.” It takes courage to embrace that Scripture! It’s hard to follow and obey the risen Jesus if you’re not willing to freak people out.

When people enthusiastically pursue a lifestyle of following and obeying the risen Jesus, society considers them to be freaks. So where have the Jesus Freaks gone?

In 50 years, American Christianity has gone from Jesus Freaks to Christian Nationalists. Jesus Freaks seek to connect their life to the risen Jesus. Christian Nationalists seek to connect their religion to their nation.

Diversity and inclusion seldom open their doors to Jesus Freaks. To be considered a freak by a messed-up culture is a compliment. When Christians begin to expect society’s approval, they stop being fools for Christ.

In the bubble of time, people continually captivated by the living Jesus are called freaks, but in eternity they will be the norm! People who think that being a Jesus Freak is foolish have been fooled.

If a church service would take the controls off of the risen Jesus, He would take the wheel and many people would be freaked out. Jesus will always be at large. He can never be contained in any religious organization!

Jesus Freaks beam
With the light of Christ
Disregarding their own

You don’t have to seek
Or try hard
To be a Jesus Freak.
Just seek Jesus daily
With your whole heart
And people will call you that.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
