(Jesus speaking) “Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace….” Matthew 10
Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys recently passed away. In an article about his life a writer said he started loving the Beastie Boys at 14 because nothing about them was correct. In other words, they were not what was “normal” to all the adults in his life, especially his parents! I’m sure “Fight for Your Right to Party” became his personal anthem. You probably did something like that as a teen. Rebelled against the “establishment.” Hey, it’s part of growing up, right? We can’t be like “them”!
Has the establishment been getting you down lately? Have you thought about starting a revolution? In the Bible Jesus is accurately portrayed as a rebel. He taught about a new way to live life. If there was ever a nonconformist on this earth…it was Jesus. The religious leaders of the time saw him as a renegade. At the very least, he was a maverick, showing people how God could change their lives.
Do you feel like starting a revolt today?!! At your work place? At your school? In your own house? What about starting a revolution in your own life? A revolution of the heart. Join forces with the greatest revolutionary who has ever lived. Jesus.
