Fool for Christ

When you are misunderstood
And people treat you like slime,
Because you love His Kingdom
Then you are a fool for Christ.

With your head now above the trench
You abandon the rest of your life,
To the message that brings disdain
Then you are a fool for Christ.

When you know how to go without
And you know how to be abased,
Your presence meets disapproval
Then you are a fool for Christ.

Others are so highly esteemed
And honourable in the crowd's sight,
And your not in their prestigious company
Then you are a fool for Christ.

But you love the God who loved you first
And proud you're identified,
With a no-reputation Jesus
Then you are a fool for Christ.



1 Corinthians 4:10 As for us, we are fools on account of Christ. But as for you, you are members of the intelligentsia in your union with Christ. As for us, we are those who are frail and infirm. But as for all of you, you are those who are mighty. As for all of you, you are those who are illustious, honorable, held in esteem by others. But as for us, we are those whom no one respects. (Wuest version)
