Practicing Transformation

“Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      (Philippians 4:8, 9)

You don’t need another sermon.  You don’t need more information.  You do need to practice what’s been preached.  You do need to turn information into action and to reflect on that action. This is the pattern of transformational learning.

We are halfway through our Fifty Days of Transformation.  Chris Mowbray will share transformation testimony this Sunday.  I hope all of us have a testimony to share and have collected some good origami.  Origami is not our goal, transformed lives are.

We have received information Sunday mornings, in our small groups and in personal devotions, but this information in and of itself is not transforming.  When we take that information and put it into practice, that is where transformation happens. This is a process outlined in the Ridder Church Renewal.  It requires three key elements: Information-Practice-Reflection.  It is what Paul is talking about in Philippians 4.  It is not enough to simply think about what is true, just, and pure. His final call is to put that into practice.  As we put into practice what we are learning, we reflect on the outcome of how that change is taking place.

The Fifty Days process captures this beautifully as each week we are invited to write down a goal that we will live into for the next three months, and have the opportunity to share how that is going with our group.  I pray that you are seeing transformation in key areas of your life.  Keep learning, keep practicing, keep reflecting.

It’s morphing time,

Taylor
