Here is what God wants us to do. I think the simplicity in this verse comes in when we actually think about it, make a plan and do it. It's not hard, you just got to do it.
But he's already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, And don't take yourself too seriously— take God seriously.
If we remember that we are nothing and God is everything, that will make this process so much easier. Let's say it together, "We are nothing, God is everything." Good job! Now go do it.
II Corinthians 5:13 says that “if we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you.”
When people look at us as believers, do they think we are just common place. Do they look at us just like they would look at their typical next door neighbor? Or do they see us as different in some way?
I'm not talking about different in a weird freaky way, I'm talking about in a way that inspires them to be better people. Not out of guilt, but out of inspiration.
Do people look at us like we are out of our minds? Again, I don't think like crazy out of your mind but, so much in love with God we are not the normal person walking down the street.
