A Loose Cannon, Every Spirit-filled Believer

The day Jesus became a “loose cannon”:

“Jesus said, “Here is a saying you will certainly apply to me. ‘Doctor, heal yourself! Do the things here in your hometown that we heard you did in Capernaum.’ ” “What I’m about to tell you is true,” he continued. “A prophet is not accepted in his hometown. I tell you for sure that there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah. And there had been no rain for three and a half years. There wasn’t enough food to eat anywhere in the land. But Elijah was not sent to any of those widows. Instead, he was sent to a widow in Zarephath near Sidon. And there were many in Israel who had skin diseases in the days of Elisha the prophet. But not one of them was healed except Naaman the Syrian.” All the people in the synagogue were very angry when they heard that. They got up and ran Jesus out of town. They took him to the edge of the hill on which the town was built. They planned to throw him down the cliff. But Jesus walked right through the crowd and went on his way.”
‭‭(Luke‬ ‭4:23-30‬)‭ 

Simple Definition of “loose cannon”
: a person who cannot be controlled and who does or says things that cause problems, embarrassment, etc., for others (Merriam-Webster)

You could not have met Jesus and not become uncontrolled.

“The wind blows where it wants to. You hear the sound it makes. But you can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going. It is the same with everyone who is born through the Spirit.”
‭‭(John‬ ‭3:8‬)

I became a cannon set free the day Jesus filled me with the Holy Spirit. A loose cannon, fearless, bold, impartial, that’s the image of the truth. The image of faith. Faith is fearless and bold. Faith speaks boldly and listen carefully. A loose cannon of the Spirit, that’s who we are in Christ.
