Luke 9:58 (NIV)
This passage comes right after the pivot point in Luke where Jesus sets of (resolutely) towards this destiny and death in
1 Peter 2:11 (NIV)
And John says
John 1:10 (NIV)
So, am I weird for weirdness sake or for God's sake? I am I a resident alien because I am a follower and Jesus seems quirky, out-of-step, with the spirit of the age? Would anyone recognize me as "other" because I am a follower or do I camouflage my faith well? Today, I want to be decidedly alien, for God's sake. I will follow and followers are weird.
