The (Super) Normal Christian Life

It is abnormal for a Christian not to have an appetite for the impossible. It has been written into our spiritual DNA to hunger for the impossibilities around us to bow at the name of Jesus.

One of the reasons why I enjoy what God is doing at Bethel Church in Redding, CA is because they are trying to operate in biblical vibrant Christianity that often flies in the face of a Western context.

It is this context (the one in which I live in) that discredits anything supernatural under its presuppositions about the way the world works. Unfortunately, those assumptions are in the church today as evidenced by the many who have lost their appetite for the miraculous and have even built theologies based on a completely material worldview.

Bible stories are just Bible stories, they say. not events to be reincarnated and realized for today. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, but only in regards to the mind and not to powerful spiritual encounters.

And against such notions, Bill Johnson gives a great quote on what should be the natural state of Christians. That operating in the supernatural, unlike what our Western mindset says, should be normal.
