Ten Signs You Are Becoming “Normal!”

Jesus wasn’t normal…He didn’t fit into the religious system of the day.

Neither did Paul…

Neither did ANYONE He has ever used.

So…how do we NOT become “normal” – here are 10 signs to look for…

#1 – You begin to take less risks, saying there is too much at stake now, thus the need to “play it safe.”  (God has not called His church to play prevent defense but rather RUN UP THE FREAKIN SCORE!)

How to tell if you are becoming normal…
When did God ever use anyone normal?  Noah was a crazy old man! Abraham wasn’t even a Christian.  David, Peter was a foul mouth fisherman.  Yet God used them!  Rahab was a ho!
1 – you begin to take less risks
2 – you let the voices of the critics in your head define what you will do.
3 – you begin making excuses as to why things are the way they are.
4 – you seek out other complacent people and together you guys fire shots at those you perceive to be successful.
5 – you talk about what you used to do way More than you talk about what you want to do.
6 – you seek consensus in every decision that you make.
7 – you refuse to have anyone around you that will speak the truth
8 – you care way more about your paycheck than you do your calling.
9 – your biggest desire in life is to keep everyone happy rather than calling them to a higher level.

10 – you seek the position of leadership rather than being a person that people actually want to follow.

1 – you begin to take less risks

#2 – You let the voices of the critics become louder than the voice of God, thus giving them (not Him) control of your life and ministry.  (You will ALWAYS have critics as long as your are attempting to do significant things for Jesus.)

#3 – You begin making excuses as to why things are the way they are instead of addressing the problem head on.

#4 – You seek out other complacent people and together you guys fire shots at those you perceive to be successful.

#5 – You talk about what you used to do way more than you talk about what you want to do.

#6 – You seek consensus in every decision that you make.

#7 – You refuse to have anyone around you that will speak the truth.

#8 – You care way more about your paycheck than you do your calling; therefore you refuse to “rock the boat” by saying/doing what you feel God has clearly called you to do.

#9 – Your biggest desire in life is to keep everyone happy rather than calling them to a higher level of commitment.

#10 – You seek the position of leadership rather than simply being a person that people actually want to follow.
