While Paul was saying this in his defense, Festus said in a loud voice, “Paul, you are out of your mind! Your great learning is driving you mad.” Acts 26:24
While Paul was on trial for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, Festus, who was a Roman procurator that had Paul on trial, yelled out to Paul “ You are out of your mind” this may be the same reaction many of us get even today as Christians.
King Agrippa , who had prior knowledge of Jesus ministry and the prophecies about him, was intrigued to hear Pauls testimony and even challenged Paul “Can you persuade me in such a short time to become a Christian?”
To the world the gospel of Jesus Christ sounds insane, because their hearts and minds are closed and they don’t have the Holy Spirit. I believe the gospel of Jesus Christ can be explained logically and reasonably, but I also believe without the Holy Spirit you will never fully grasp the truth that God has revealed to us
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
We need to renew our minds, forget your preconceived notions about God. Listen to the gospel of Jesus Christ with a clean heart and mind. Allow the Holy Spirit to work through you, to give you greater understanding beyond human comprehension in Jesus name Amen!
Heavenly Father, give us a clean heart and mind, renew us so we may understand you more, fill us with your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name Amen
