One in a Million!

How special are you?

When’s the last time anyone asked you this question? In this busy world where success is the standard of acceptability and, let’s face it, most of us are average Joe’s just living life, we get lost the crowd. It’s as though we are just one life in an ocean of humanity and begin to feel no more important to everyone else as a drop of rain in the ocean. But let’s consider this question for just a moment.

How special are you?

We all know that somewhere in the world, there is another person that looks just like us. Everyone has a “doppelgaenger.” That’s another person that looks similar enough to you that if another person who knows you should run into this doppelgaenger, they will call out your name to this stranger. But if this stranger should happen to respond and give your friend just a few minutes of time, your friend will quickly know that they simply met another person who looks just like you, but not you. Here is an interesting article online from the BBC. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20160712-you-are-surprisingly-likely-to-have-a-living-doppelganger It appears that it’s very likely for us to have a “twin stranger.”

But even if we were to find one “twin stranger” anywhere in the world, you would still both be unique individuals with different needs, friends, and desires. Though the two of you may appear alike, you are most definitely different. You can truly say with all certainty that there is no other person like you in the entire world. And yet, God has called you to have a personal relationship with Him.

How special are you?

Genesis 2: 7 says, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” When you think about it, we really are made of dust. About $2.63 is the value of the dust left from a person’s body after complete dehydration and pulverization. Our composition is very similar to that of red clay or adam in Hebrew. So $2.63 in red clay can be worked on a potter’s wheel and make a really nice pitcher or vase. Yet the lump of clay that made you, lives, breathes, loves, cares, and can touch another person’s life. You are worth much more than the value of the dust because God sculpted your body into the being that you are. Just as it takes a master sculptor to turn a lump of clay into a useful and beautiful object, God took dust from the ground and molded that dust to become a living and breathing you! And there is no other person on earth like you.

How special are you?

Of all the people on the planet, you are one of only very few people who can walk into your parent’s or friend’s home without an invitation. For some of you, without even knocking. How special are you? Only you are trusted to this degree with these people whom only you know. I don’t know them and may never know them, but God called them to the same deliverance you have, and you can love them for Him. That means, when they see that you are able to overcome adversity, even though you are unqualified, unable, untalented, weak, poor, fearful, or unknown, they see the hand of God on your life. When you are lifted up and delivered even though you are insignificant or undeserving, they are witnessing the hand of God on your life.

How special are you?

You are a mass of hydrated dust formed by God to prove His love and power on your life.

You are made significant by God as He delivers you from obscurity to greatness. Not because of your own ability, beauty, knowledge, skill, or power, but by God’s ability and power.

You are the Gideon of your family and neighborhood. You won’t deserve to be delivered, but you will be. And because of your example of deliverance over and over, especially in the face of insurmountable odds, you will prove that God is real, God is love, and God is powerfully supporting you.

How special are you?

Look at this question from God’s point of view for your answer. He made you from the dust of the earth. He made you to be a Trinitarian being of body, soul, and spirit. But Adam lost the spirit in the Garden of Eden. God sent His Son to purchase your life from the Devil with His own life on the cross. You were born body and soul naturally because of Adam but chose to become body, soul, and spirit when you chose to follow Jesus Christ. When you made that decision for your life, you gained a spiritual father by becoming a child of God.

How special are you?

To the world, your value is measured in dollars and cents. Only $2.63. But in God’s eyes, you were worth the cost of His Son’s life.

How special are you?

Stop looking at your life from the eyes of the world that only serves to make you invisible and insignificant. Start looking at your life from the eyes of God who gave His only begotten Son for you to become whole: body, soul, and spirit.

John 3: 16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Your value is not measured by the standards of the flesh that the world uses. Your value is really measured by the standard of God established in His Word. His standard is spiritual and it is because you choose to live with Him by obedience to His Spirit within you that makes you valuable.

“Rules for Radical Christians: A Practical Primer for defeating Radical Liberals at Their Own Game” begins by exposing how the world works to keep you in bondage. But unlike most books that rant on the question: What’s wrong?, for the majority of the book, the majority of this book is devoted to: How to overcome and defeat the world. Yet the average believer has no idea how to overcome the world because we are too wrapped up with survival against the world instead.

We have to start with our own lives first and we are taught to feel alone, powerless, and inadequate for the initial task of changing our own life, (let alone changing the world) and we are right. We can’t do it alone. But the people we trust to help us overcome, are equally lost and inadequate. We are like a room full of blinded people, looking for a door without a handle, and the light is turned off. So we need to turn to God.

If the God you follow is silent, what are you following? When you ask God for answers, expect Him to answer. If He never answers, you have the right to question whether you are following the true God or a false god of religion.

If the God you follow is powerless, why should you expect to experience a miracle? Only a God of power can answer a need with unexplainable miracles. If you need a miracle in your life, ask God and expect a miracle. If nothing ever happens, you have the right to question whether you are following the true God or a false god of religion. If you call yourself a believer, what do you believe and expect from your God? If you believe and expect nothing, why bother to say that you expect a miracle at all?

The first rule for Radical Christians is: Our God is powerful and lives within us, His Word is also powerful that lives within us.

This is the God that calls you out of that dark room to come into the light. This is the God that watched His creation be delivered to His enemy, the Devil by His child, Adam. This is the God that sent His son to pay the price that frees you from the power and authority of the world. The price was obedience to all the law, even to death, and Jesus died on the cross to pay the price we could never pay. In return, God raised Jesus from death three days and nights later and after Jesus rose to heaven, sent the Holy Spirit to live within every believer since Pentecost. This is the God of Radical Christianity.

This is the God that energizes the lifeless dust that makes us worth $2.63 to the world and made you a unique and priceless individual. This is the God that fills you with His Spirit when you choose to follow Jesus Christ instead of powerless religion. This is the God that will deliver you in every way and teach you how to overcome the world in the process. You are more than one in a million, you are the only one in all creation who is you and God wants to walk and talk with you every day.

That makes you really special!

I believe every born again Christian has the ability interact with God Almighty by way of His Holy Spirit and this is Radical Christianity. It is my mission to encourage and empower spiritual greatness in every Christian believer, no matter which brand of Christianity they choose to follow. By doing so, change the world around us, and the culture we live within. I believe Radical Christians are part of every Christian church in the world. If we want to restore morality, Radical Christians are the only answer for recovery. I want my book and this blog become a powerful and winning influence against Atheist liberalism. We can restore our culture through the combined power and influence of God at work in the lives of Radical Christians everywhere.
