So, What’s the Deal with the Clown Noses?

“So, what’s the deal with the clown noses?” You wanna know?

At the beginning of my message Sunday morning I made this statement:

“You know, I think sometimes I care too much about what others think about me.” referencing the conflict that we have between what WE PERSONALLY believe and what we willingly share with others publicly.

Before you judge me because you’re an extroverted bold witness of Christ who is NEVER afraid to share with others… I think most of us have had at least one time in our lives where we could have said something for God and we didn’t. Truth is, for many there are times where we shrink when we should STAND for God…

I hope that you will listen to the whole message on Vertical App or the podcast when it becomes available later today but I want those of you who are followers of Jesus to remember that “the message of the cross is foolishness…” (1 Cor 1:18 NIV) to those who have not yet met Jesus. It seems like crazy talk. Like my work buddy, John, said to me years ago, “you don’t really believe that stuff, do you?”

So, what IS the deal with the noses?

I wanted us to feel a little foolish together. I wanted us to feel silly together in a safe place. I pushed it further by asking how far a person would travel with their noses on. I saw some great pics of people rockin’ their noses in VERY public places.

I wanted us to feel a little foolish together. I wanted us to feel silly together in a safe place. I pushed it further by asking how far a person would travel with their noses on. I saw some great pics of people rockin’ their noses in VERY public places.

But you know, another interesting thing happened: I saw people, who I know love the Lord, who would not put on their nose, even in the safety of the hundreds of church family doing it with them. I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN and I hope that it is still on their hearts and in their thoughts. Here’s the underlying question from my challenge to rock the clown nose:

“If I won’t wear a silly nose in the safety of my church family will I really step out in boldness to share my faith in an awkward or uncomfortable situation?”

I’m not answering that question for anyone. I’m not saying they won’t. Many probably would. After all, wearing a clown nose is NOT the same as sharing your faith – But the awkwardness you feel in doing both IS.

For most, I would imagine that a prayer for humility and boldness is in order. And before you say, “amen”, I hope you’ll pray: “And Lord, I will be a fool for Jesus.”
