Fanaticism has been defined as a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, a person who has very strong beliefs that may lead them to behave in unreasonable ways. Fanaticism is built into the very fabric and DNA of Christianity, the Master Himself has set the bar to which all coming after Him must strive to reach. There can be no serving our Lord in half measure, the one setting His hand to the plough must not look back but go on in the way of full obedience to Christ!! Yet, to do this will inevitably earn him the title “fanatic”, a derogatory label reserved for those whose conduct or opinion is deemed extreme and unacceptable in by today's society!
This sermon is an encouragement to the body of Christ to never be ashamed of wearing the label of a fanatic for Christ’s sake. As we see the days darkening, we are called to shine the more brighter. Lift up your head and feel no shame in representing the King of Kings!! We are ambassadors for Christ, citizens of His heavenly Kingdom, and without apology, we should never be ashamed!!
