Why No Sanity Required?

If you live your life for Jesus, in total abandonment of everything else, then people are going to think you’re crazy. It doesn’t make sense from the world’s perspective. Let’s live, teach, and grow to believe so wholeheartedly in Jesus that we are willing to abandon all earthly wisdom.

No Sanity Required has been the battle cry of Snowbird for years—for good reason.

Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians that both Jews and Gentiles considered him foolish for believing the Gospel message. It’s insanity in the eyes of the world—and that’s a good thing. The Gentiles couldn’t understand why Jesus would let people kill Him, and the Jews weren’t connecting the dots in the Old Testament that pointed to Jesus’s role as the Messiah (God the Son). The Gospel pushed back the darkness of paganism and brought true understanding to the Jewish religious beliefs.

Christian, you have been set free from sin, and now free to obey Christ! This is where true joy and fulfillment is found. What the Gospel demands, Jesus fulfills and provides for us. Hope, peace, freedom, and joy are found in Christ alone.

There is No Sanity Required — Simply a need to pursue Jesus, love Him and give His message to the world. Let’s learn to understand more clearly who Jesus is, what He expects from us, and what He offers us.

We don’t need sanity, we need Jesus.

Quotes

“We are proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ…focused on the right and proper handling of God’s Word to equip and disciple young people, men and women, families and to be a ministry that partners with local churches all across America and even the world. That’s who we are and what we do.”

“If I’m a fool I’m a fool for Christ’s sake.”

“No Sanity Required is the idea that if you live your life for Jesus, in total abandonment of everything else, and with focused and a wholehearted pursuit of Jesus, then you will live in obedience to Him and you worship Him. If you follow Him and give your life wholly to Jesus, then people are going to think you’re crazy. They’re going to think that doesn’t make sense. In the world’s knowledge and ideology, it doesn’t make sense. It is insanity.”

“In the world’s eyes, there is insanity to a true pursuit of Christ.”

“Let’s live and teach and grow and disciple in a Christianity that the world looks at and goes, ‘this is crazy.’ These people, they’re willing to go to the ends of the earth, they’re willing to do whatever it takes to reach others for the Gospel. They believe so whole-heartedly in the Gospel of Jesus Christ that they will abandon all earthly wisdom.”

“Christ sets us free from everything but the Gospel. What the Gospel demands Christ fulfills and then gives to us and now we’re free to just obey and follow Him and worship Him, that to the world is insanity, is foolishness to the world.”
