week 9: Collaborating with God

View Video Transcript

One of the great themes of human history is God's collaboration with humanity. God wants to collaborate with you. He wants to collaborate with you, he wants to collaborate with me, he wants to collaborate with your church, and he wants to collaborate with us to transform the world.

Every day, the seven billion people on this planet, they're all sending these prayers up to God. Very often, God wants you and I to collaborate with him to answer these prayers. Because a lot of people's prayers don't require some incredible miracle to answer their prayers. A lot of people's prayers just require a little bit of kindness, a little bit of courage, a little bit of generosity. And you and I? We are capable of that. We are capable of collaborating with God to answer people's prayers every day.

But in order to do that, we have to get beyond the biggest lie in the history of Christianity. We've got to get beyond a lot of lies that we're constantly being taught about Christianity so we can begin to collaborate with God in a powerful way—so that, with God, we can answer so many prayers with our kindness, with our courage, with our generosity.

We can collaborate with God to transform the world, one person at a time. It’s time to stop making excuses and start praying intentionally to discover how we can answer the prayers of those around us with our kindness, courage, and generosity.
