Do the CBS (“Crazy” Bible Stuff)

It’s time to begin to do the CBS, the “crazy” Bible stuff. Dare to read it, believe it, & boldly do it — now. Definition: “Crazy Bible stuff” is stuff in the Bible commonly considered to be crazy. Here’s an example: “If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed.”

It takes “crazy” courage to push aside your own desires and do the “crazy” Bible stuff instead. There’s great hope in this “crazy” Bible stuff! “The prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well.”

If you will do the “crazy” stuff of the Bible, “crazy” will soon become amazing! Perhaps actually doing the “crazy” Bible stuff (CBS) is the key to sanity. “Be doers of the word, and not hearers only.”

Try some non-stop, “crazy” Bible stuff: “Pray without ceasing.”

In a society that teaches us to do whatever feels good; this “crazy” Bible stuff says: “Resist the devil & he will flee from you.”

Here’s some more CBS: Jesus said; “Cast out demons.” Don’t let demons influence or torment you. Run them out of your mind!

This “crazy” Bible stuff will help clear your conscience. “Confess your faults to one another.” It takes crazy self-control to do this “crazy” Bible stuff: “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths.”

Meetings can be mighty boring. Doing the “crazy” Bible stuff makes them come alive with awe & wonder! When Christians meet with the agility of the Holy Spirit and do the “crazy Bible stuff,” signs and wonders begin to happen.

People who enjoy boring meetings shouldn’t be in charge of church services. (Ekklesia speaks louder than church.) Maybe one man doing all the talking isn’t the most effective way to hold a church meeting.

An actual demonstration of “crazy” Bible stuff is worth 1,000 sermons. “Crazy” Bible stuff! The world doesn’t need you to preach about
“turning the other cheek.” They need to see you do it! Faulty logic: “I attend church; therefore I am a Christian.”

“Crazy” Bible stuff: “Teach and admonish one another.” Oh for an environment where that can be done during church meetings!

This “crazy” Bible stuff is especially hard to do! “Count it all joy when you fall into various trials.” Also try this CBS: “Be kind and compassionate to one another; forgiving each other.”

Here’s some “crazy” Bible stuff you can do on Facebook. “Bless those who curse you.” Here’s some “crazy” Bible stuff almost everyone disobeys:
“You shall not lie.”

This “crazy Bible stuff” could make a “shock-jock” flinch. “Whoever keeps the whole law & yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.”

You might want to experience this CBS: “I want you all to speak in tongues.” –Apostle Paul. To sum up “crazy” Bible stuff: “Deny yourself.”

“Crazy” Bible stuff is important because the physical world is but a temporary illusion. It is untold trillions of electrons orbiting empty space. However, when the reality of God shines through the physical world, we call it beauty.

Religious programs tend to divide us, but doing the “crazy” Bible stuff can bring us together as one. When two people who are intimately connected to the risen Jesus meet, they have an instant connection with one another.

What “Crazy” Bible Stuff (CBS) has most impacted your life?

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 co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We 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 called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
