You Have a Perfect System
Congratulations! You have a perfect system.
“Your system is perfectly designed to provide the exact results you are getting.” – Andy Stanley
Your financial position is the exact byproduct your financial system is designed to produce.
Your fitness level is the exact byproduct your fitness system is designed to produce.
Your spiritual disciplines are the exact byproduct your spiritual disciplines system is designed to produce.
Your church’s group participation, giving, and service are the exact product your church’s systems are designed to produce.
You may ask, “If systems produce then where’s the room for the Holy Spirit’s role?”
Systems produce participation. The Holy Spirit changes hearts. Effective systems lead people to environments we’ve seen the Holy Spirit most often do his work.
So before you create another event or program at your church, evaluate your system. What do want people to do? What are the steps they must take to get there? Should you implement clearer, more simple steps for people to take? Where are the roadblocks? Where are people getting “stuck”?
You have designed a system that is perfectly designed to produce your current results.
