Misfits

Webster’s Dictionary’s definition for Misfit is a person who does not seem to belong in a particular group or situation.

Acts 4:13 saysNow when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus”. Peter and John had been fishermen before they met Jesus. The Sanhedrin probably looked at them the same way the Pharisee’s looked at Jesus. They said isn’t this the son of a carpenter? Can anything good come out of Nazareth? They were the misfits of their time, but something happened. Jesus comes into their life and their whole world changed. Jesus would spend time with them teaching them and training them. They received the power of the Holy Spirit and prayed for the crippled beggar that gets healed at the gate beautiful. Something was different about these misfits! They were changed from within the heart by the Holy Spirit and power! The Sanhedrin couldn’t refute that because here the man born crippled stood there in front of them testifying of Gods goodness! A person with a testimony will always trump the person with an opinion.

I remember helping doing an outreach with some friends a few years ago in Mobile, Alabama. This was a drug rehabilitation center and a Bible School that helps people get free from addiction and eventually for ministry. I can’t remember the person’s name, but one of the students at the outreach was wearing a shirt that caught my attention. I was totally drawn to what the shirt said and its meaning. Here was a bunch of people that society had given up on. I’m sure many of them were told that they would never live up to anything and that they were worthless. In this outreach, I was witnessing really a miracle from the Lord. Many of the folks came from all walks of life, but they had one goal to come and be free from what kept them bound for so many years. Little did they know, The Lord was going to take what the Devil meant for evil and turn it around for good (Rom. 8:28). The word was misfits! These precious people who came from all walks of life were now cleaned up by the Lord by His blood and were being trained for the ministry. They were going into areas to help people get free from the same addictions that they Lord had brought them out of. What the world sees as trash, God sees as treasure! Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart! (1 Sam. 16:7) These Misfits had been with Jesus and are now changing the World one person at a time for the glory of the Lord! Misfits arise! Let’s go take back the ground the enemy has stolen! It’s time!
