Stop Trying to Change the World

I read those words recently in book called The Kingdom Life in the chapter “Spiritual Formation from the Inside Out” by Bill Hull. In it, Hull relates a conversation in which he explained a new perspective on God’s calling on His life and the nature of leadership in the church. His words resonated deeply with me …

“I have spent a lot of my life trying to make things happen and trying to get the people around me to do what they didn’t want to do or have the character to do. I’ve decided to stop trying to change the world. I’ve even stopped trying to change the church. People seem to get so angry. I have decided to focus on changing me. I’ve hit a lot of walls in my life and have hurt a lot of people. I’m finished with that. I just want people to be attracted to Christ because of who I am and what I have to say and the way I say it.”
