Profiles of a Misfit
#1. They enjoy solitude.
Moments alone are when they are most prone to
SOW—or have Spontaneous Outbursts of Worship.
They understand the investment of time spent in the presence
Of the one who gave them space to repent
So they make space for Him in their plans
Even when plans each day never cease to end
The day indisputably has to begin with a “thank you Lord, amen”
They may crave to leave a party or work early sometimes to rush home –
not to flick on the television and watch the latest episode of Empire
But to have an episode of intimate fire and desire
That may culminate in passionate cries of sounds like,
Or “Glory to the Lamb
The I Am”
They don’t do it for the glam,
They do it for the Vine
Their Life Line connection who impowers them with New Wine
#2. Sometimes, the people who should recognize them, don’t.
For example, because He didn’t come riding regally on a white horse,
The religious experts concluded that He could not be the Son of God since
He didn’t fit the criteria of a Savior in their eyes.
He was humble, gentle, and was not concerned about riches.
So, how could He call himself, Jesus?
He spoke in parabolic riddles
They spoke in absolutes
They were stuck on tradition
He was the walking Truth
on a mission to uproot principles of no use.
He was the prophetic revelation concealed to blinded eyes
But a stumbling block to those who thought they were wise
Despised by those who should’ve welcomed Him with praise
And praised by those ignorant of who He was in the first place
The broken realized He could do some fixing
But the mended wanted to break Him on the cross of His crucifixion
They purchased with accusations that He committed treason
although the government sits on His shoulders as He orchestrates seasons--
their reasons slightly logical when measured by the law
but the Justice of Peace revealed every flaw
but they saw what they saw
#3. They have strange diets.
One of the most renown misfits was said to have eaten locusts—and wild honey.
But some go days without eating anything at all.
#4. They believe they can fly.
They have this sensational idea in their mind
that at the end of all time
A King will crack the sky and whisk them away in the twinkling of an eye
Like blink, goodbye
Almost like Aladdin on a magic carpet ride
Except this will be the ride of their life
To a whole new world where they reign with Christ
Science fiction has created cinematic depictions of this
Flight misfits anticipate any night or day
So they stay prepped and wait
#5. They think.
And for thinking, they’re labeled rebels.
But they find no satisfaction in rebellion as it is a sin akin to witchcraft.
But they think and ponder.
And compare the reality of God’s Word with the climate of today.
They think that if God came to seek and save the lost, why do some churches impose heavier weights on sinners before they even get to the Cross?
They think of how we can point fingers and critique the sinner or seem surprised
by a sinner who will keep sinning until transformed by God.
Such were some of you, they think
Till you fell in love with a Savior and applied His Truth
