Are Christians called to be radical? Are we call to be a little risky, to operate outside our comfort zone? And by that I mean untying ourselves from the cultural norm... in order to reach people for our Master's kingdom, in order to bring glory to God? Where is the line between keeping myself from complancency and keeping myself from instability, between being sold out for Jesus and just being stupid? Does radical Christian living come with a charge of never being satisfied and constantly searching for something more? And, if so is that necessarily a bad thing? At what point does radical-ness become a turnoff for nonbelievers? And is that even a factor to be considered? In other words, if a person is doing their best to follow the leading of the Lord, does it matter what anyone else thinks?
It's probably a good idea to answer this question first...
In what areas of my life am I called to be stable, steady and grounded?
Scriptures? Thoughts? Answers? I have some, but I want to hear yours first.
