Christ Possessed

By Terry Wardle

November 2, 2009

I must admit that I love hanging out with people who are possessed. I try to spend as much time with them as possible. There’s an un-definable quality about possessed people that makes them almost irresistible. They are contagious. That’s the only way I know how to explain it. Contagious. It’s like something almost jumps off them and sticks to people. Get around a possessed person and you end up a little like them. And it leaves you wanting to be even more like them.

Being possessed is not something you can do on your own. Many have tried, but no one has ever pulled it off. Not really. I’ve seen some work hard at it, but in the end it was a sad sight. The “realness” wasn’t there. Kind of like a bad Elvis impersonator. Shades of similarity, but definitely not the real thing. You must have help to be possessed. Holy Spirit help. Thankfully, it’s the kind of help he likes to provide.

Christ possessed people simply can’t get enough of Jesus. They want to spend time with Jesus, become more and more like Jesus, hang around people who are passionate about Jesus, dedicate their lives to Jesus, all the while doing things through Jesus, mystically connected to Jesus, until they spend all eternity with Jesus. Christ possessed people get to a point where it is almost like Jesus himself is living his life in and through them. They are possessed.

Based on the description in your blog, I may be possessed. To think that, say that, and write that ... comes across to me as arrogant and self-promotional. But, I cannot ignore my own thoughts of the head and thoughts of the heart. One question: if in fact I am, would it be possible to revise the name? Or maybe create a sub-category, ie- possessed or overly passionate ... POOP for short. :-)

Terry ... I left you a message yesterday via the "contact us" tool on your site. I would love to followup your visit to Heritage Christian Church in Feb (the first time I'd every heard of Dr. Terry Wardle) with a short phone call whenever your calendar might permit. I am not a stalker ... just a Christ follower with a new-found and keen interest in your subject matter.

Thank you.
