Graham Brenna wrote in the blog Church Crunch a quotation from Jim Elliston.


We're convinced that the world needs us to be good at a lot of things. But the truth is, the world really needs us to be great at one thing.


Brenna's thought was this.  A red Ferrari turns heads when it drives by. What about your church or ministry turns heads? Churches spend a lot of time trying to be all things to all people in order to be "inclusive" but may miss the mark by being "nothing to anyone" instead. John, in the Book of Revelation, has God spitting out "lukewarm," preferring hot or cold instead.


But get closer to home. God made you deliciously unique. We are not a consumption driven drone of the American Dream nor a disciple cookie cutter robot nor are we created by God to be Miss/Mr. Popularity, a people-pleaser. Here is the question, "What about you did God "build in" you that should turn heads? An answer of, "I don't know," is a cop-out. Find out. Do not rest until you find out. Loads of help and inventories are out their. Test it out. Then be/do that. You will glorify God and be less stressed. You are great!
