A favorite quote of mine...

“Isn’t it the task of the Holy Spirit to introduce some madness and intoxication into the world? Why this propensity for balance and safety? Don’t we all long for one moment of raw risk, one moment of divine madness?”

I've come back to this statement a number of times today. On the one hand I really like it because I think it accurately reflects the true character of the life and ministry of Jesus, and life in the Spirit. On the other hand one needs to be very discerning when it comes to some individuals (and groups) concept of being radical. Being radical for 'radicals' sake is not of the Spirit either. Excellent quote! I have wrestled with it a lot over the course of the day :).

If a mind is wrestling, then it is productive. Glad I could help keep you busy. I love this quote. All for right reasons though. ;-)
