"Rich-ieee!" the gleaming Caribbean ex-addict sings my name as the worship music soars and pounds to start the service. We embrace and I can feel the crazy coming off of him. We stand back and I look wildly into his wild-eyed grin, yelping, "Yeah! God likes the crazy people!" And he yelps back, "Rich-ieee! Because we'll get crazy for him!"And I let out a cackling bipolar howl as the music blares.
This man knows something about "crazy." He decided to get clean only after a drug deal got him thrown into the trunk of a car; driven into a field in Middle-of-Nowhere, New York; beaten, broken, bloodied, and left for dead until a woman - who just happened to be a Christian - came to the rescue. He is now every bit as rabid and raving for Christ as he ever was for crack-cocaine.
My Caribbean brother and I rejoice that God has so equipped us to get crazy for Him.
Now, let me be clear. When I talk about "getting crazy for God," I am not talking about doing something stupid like taking a leap off of a third-story ledge to prove that God will send His angels to bear you up lest you dash your foot against a stone. God is not going to ask you to do something stupid. He does not need you to handle snakes or drink poison to prove that he is God.

He must. He certainly made a lot of them.
I think crazy people in their own way have a special connection to God.
