If you're a perfectionist, you can probably relate with my feelings: I like to get things done perfectly, first try, no mistakes, and way before deadline. How often does that actually happen? Well, ok...never. But I still try-it's a bit of an obsession really.
That's why what Mark Earley shared during devotions this week at Ambassador really struck a cord with me-and perhaps you'll feel the same. To get the full impact, click here to listen to what he shared. But as a recap, he basically explained that the first half of his life, he was dedicated to doing things right. The second half, he's committed to loving right.
It's really not as easy as it sounds. Loving "right" means we have such a robust worldview, that it impacts every aspect of our lives. We'll be so contagious, others will want what we have. That's when real change takes place in communities ...and in the end, that's all that really matters. Not perfection by transformation.
That's the point Chuck Colson also shared earlier this week at the Reagan Library. He explained that transformation doesn't happen because of external factors...but because of an internal change that occurs when broken people discover the unconditional love and grace of Jesus Christ.
That's what the work of Prison Fellowship is all about...and as I evaluate what I wanted my life to be marked by, I find myself wanting the same thing. It's all about having the right world view, which is the only catalyst for a changed life that impacts the world for Jesus Christ.
You can always count on Chuck and Mark to share profound nuggets that challenge people to the core and refine worldviews. Let me know today if you haven't already added BreakPoint® and The Point® to your line up. I'll handle the details so you can share this message with your listeners!
