The Outsiders

The man Jesus was, by any definition, an outsider.download

Every prophet or seer in the bible and in man’s world, without exception, was an outsider.

Those called by the Teacher were outsiders, even though they didn’t know it yet.

The call is to come out. To leave whatever man-inspired thing you are in, and to simply come out.

But the difficulty rises because so much of of what we are wants to be on the inside, to be in, to be part of something.

When everything inside the gate is hopelessly leavened and corrupted, when greed and influence-seeking governs and animates everything – are we then supposed to try to reform it from the inside, to somehow persuade those in power to change, to lay down all that has brought them to power in the first place? Good luck with that.

Did you become an active participant in the christian religion because you are an outsider by personality or circumstance, and want so very much to be in something – a church, a community, a fellowship?

When the whore came to Jesus, she who was so despised and rejected by everyone on the inside, did he invite her to come inside something else, to join His group?

Once your spiritual eyes are opened to truly see the truth, you immediately become an outsider. That is a fact.

But be careful, because even a group of outsiders who seek to become something, turn into insiders inviting others to join them. A new gate is built around whatever they are, a sign goes on the front door, and it is just a matter of time before the hillside is forgotten.

  1. I love this! I’ve been an outsider all my life. Seasons and bouts of trying to fit into whatever it was at the time. And it always felt like an I’ll fitted coat.

  2. Jesus certainly calls us outside the camp, yet He plunges us into the Body of Christ. Those who ” know” Jesus become part of something, they are drawn together. There is a gate for the sheepfold and Jesus is the gate for the sheepfold which comprises genuine saints. Brothers and sisters are drawn to each other by the Spirit that is common to them all. They have one heart, one mind and one Body. It is the heart of God, the mind of Christ and they are baptized, immersed into the mystical Body. Each priest a stone shaped and fitted rightly for that heavenly temple wherin God dwells. If the Spirit indeed dwells within a man then he is outside the world and inside the heart of God………..bro Frank
