Can I Be Christian without Being Weird?

Can I Be Christian without Being Weird?

by Kevin W. Johnson




As a Christian you know you're supposed to be different. But how weird do you have to be? Does it mean:

—Bizarre looks-hoisted pants, yuck hair, and funny glasses?

—Strange talk-always quoting the Bible and saying "Praise Jesus"?

—Unbelievable actions-running to the lunchroom supervisor to explain who started the food fight?

Jesus doesn't tell Christians to ware strange hats or to shave their heads. What makes a Christian different from other people is that he or she is learning to love God totally and learning to love others unselfishly. Now that is weird because so few people, kids or adults, follow these commands of Jesus. In a crowd, a Christian living like Jesus expects really stands out, and that can be tough.

If you want to understand what the Bible says about a real relationship with Jesus Christ, the forty-five short devotionals in this book address the crucial junior high needs of:

—Getting to know God.

—Following Christ without being weird.

—Letting God shape self-image.

—Learning to talk to God.

Being a Christian, surviving Junior High and keeping your friends—it's possible!
