Safe? Who said
anything about safe?
To follow Jesus is a dangerous thing. Look through the pages of scripture, and you’ll discover that encountering Jesus meant a life-changing transformation. One touch of his hand, one word from his mouth, and life will never be the same.
2,000 years later, we like to imagine a kinder, gentler Jesus, a Jesus who does not interfere too much in our daily lives, a Jesus who is perhaps real, but not very active. This Jesus is a safe Jesus, a Jesus who is willing to leave us alone, a Jesus who does not demand too much from us.
This Jesus is also, unfortunately, a false Jesus. Transformation is at the heart of Jesus’ message and ministry. To those who are willing to be transformed, a life of illusion becomes a life that’s real. The one who is lost is found, the one who is blind can see.
2006 is, for our congregation and our region, a year of transformation. This will begin on New Year’s Day, January 1, when I’ll share with you a special story about a personal transformation. Then in the weeks to come, we’ll begin exploring some of the ways we, as individuals and as a church, can allow God to transform us. Please come to worship on New Year’s Day as we kick off our year of transformation.
Then, if you decide that you really do want transformation to come, you’ll want to register for the Transformation Summit being held February 24-25. One hundred people from all over the region will be in attendance, and you can be, too…if you are willing. But I must warn you your church, and perhaps even you yourself, will never be the same.
So, are you ready to be changed by the awesome power of God? Are you willing to let Jesus transform your life? If so, hang on—we’re in for a wild ride!
