How to live like a freak.
In her book 'Jesus Freak' Sara Miles writes,
"What does it mean to be a Jesus freak? Or, more to the point, what would it mean to live as if you and everyone around you were Jesus, and filled with his power? To just take his teachings literally, go out the front door of your home, and act on them?
"It's actually pretty straightforward, Jesus says. Heal the sick. Cast out demons. Cleanse the lepers. You get the people something to eat. You have the authority to forgive sins. Raise the dead.
Throughout the Gospels, as he roams through Palestine, these are the commissions Jesus repeatedly hands to the ordinary people around him. Each is a specific call to action, a task for his followers to carry out on the spot and repeat when he's gone. They don't always understand. But he insists you can do this stuff, he tells them, walk this way. Come and see, do not be afraid."
