Radical. What does it mean to be radical? Webster defines it like this: very different from the usual or traditional: extreme. Why would we want to be unusual?

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2 NIV)

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. (Matthew 5:14) God clearly states that we are supposed to be a light on a hill, a beam of light for the world, to be radical. A person who is radical for Christ is one who isn’t ashamed of telling all they come in contact with how exciting the love of God is and what it means to them. When someone is around a radical person, they leave saying “if only I had what they have.” Many times, as Christians, we try to be different while fitting in. “Do not conform any longer...” We have to be different in the way we act, the way we talk, the way we think. We have to stand out from the crowd, being the white dot in a black world. Remembering that all we do is entirely from God, not from our own minds, but from a mind that fully surpasses our own. “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.” (Philippians 2:3)
