Young men tend to want to change the world. Eventually they come to realise that if they can just change themselves, they’ve accomplished more than most people do in a lifetime. I have to admit that InFocus was born more out of a desire to change the world than to change myself, but the older I get, the more I realise that God meant InFocus to change me.
I understand that not everyone sees eye to eye with me in what I write. I also understand that most people don’t care what I write. And frankly, that doesn’t bother me too much. InFocus has been an opportunity for me to grow and challenge my own thinking on so many things. It’s been a catalyst for serious study. It’s a discipline that has benefited me greatly.
Every now and then I hear a testimony of how God has used something I’ve written in the life of someone else. I’m glad when that happens. One thing I’ve realised is that it’s not what we say and do that influences others the most. It’s who we are that influences other people in the greatest way. Becoming what God intends us to become is a long, hard journey, but it is a journey that God has promised to take us on and He will not leave us half-way to the destination.
So thanks to those of you who check in here along your journey to see what is coming out of the lives of our writers on their journey. The purpose of InFocus is still to develop readers, thinkers, and theologians among Australia’s younger fundamentalists. We’ve got some great changes in the works over at GMT and some of those changes will carry over here to InFocus so stay tuned and may God bless you and keep you.
