Extreme Makeover – Me Edition

Someone gave me the book ‘Not a Fan’ to read.  In it pastor and author Kyle Idleman says he got a letter from someone in his church that said they were withdrawing their membership from his church and the reason they listed was, “I don’t like Kyle’s sermons.”  Not expecting a call from the pastor of one of the 10 largest churches in the country, the person who wrote the letter was in shock when he got a call from Pastor Kyle.  When he finally got to the point, the person said he just felt like Pastor Kyle’s sermons intrude too much on the person’s life.  Kyle said to himself, ‘Umm…. that’s basically my job.’

If Jesus isn’t intruding in and on your life, something isn’t right.  When Jesus becomes Lord of your life, it’s like the home makeover shows.  Makeover is not even the right word.  If you’ve seen the show, they tear the old house down and build a completely new house.  They remake and He remakes something that was flawed and insufficient and make(s) it into something new and beautiful and purposeful.  And that’s a welcome intrusion.
