When you hear the word "revolutionary" what do you think of? War? Innovation? Difference? I guess I think of all of those things, and even in the context of my walk with Christ they seem to apply. I am at war with the things that would compete for my affections from the One I desire most to give them to. I am at war with the enemy who wants nothing more than to win the battle we engage in each and every day. I strive to be innovative in my thinking so as to draw others to the One who created me this way. I long to be different, set apart from the world and the ones who embrace it. To be radical, to push the limit, to be looked at as a warrior for the cause of Jesus Christ, to be a Revolutionist!

Some days are better than others when I measure myself on this invisible revolutionary scale I have in my mind. What I feel God has called me to be, made me to be, longs for me to be. But I hear Him reminding me that as a warrior, He has outfitted me for battle if I will just put on my armor and pick up my sword. I hear Him compelling me to be still and listen long enough for Him to reveal His infinate innovative ways to draw people to His side. I hear Him once again telling me that I need to be true to the person He has made me to be and not be afraid to be different, challenging me - almost toe to toe sometimes, to step up!

I am a revolutionary! I will not appologize for it and I will not water it down just because it may make you uncomfortable in your little "christian bubble". Is God calling you to be one? Can you hear Him? Will you answer the call?
