Overview

EXCERPT FROM CATALOG The first thing Jesus did was do something with us: He became a man and subjected Himself to the temptations and struggles of this world. After He identified with our brokenness, He went on to do something for us. He died on the cross.
If you want to do something great, keep in mind what Jesus told us to remember.
Just before He left, He gave us specific instructions. He said, Celebrate My brokenness. Celebrate My body, broken for you. Celebrate My blood, spilled for you.
You see, He could have asked us to remember His resurrection. He could have asked us to honor the miracles He performed, or practice the way He outsmarted the smartest theologians of the time. No. He said, Celebrate My brokenness.
Why? Just as He identified with our brokenness before He did something for us, so we must identify with our brokenness before we can do something for others. We do this by acknowledging our own brokenness and sharing the healing that God is bringing to our lives. Let's keep in mind that our "DO Something" is all about allowing Him to do something through us.
Do you want to do something significant with your life?
Do you want to do what Jesus did? Here is your chance.
Just as Jesus did something with eternal impact on our behalf, He has left a model for us to do something with eternal impact for those He would send our way.
God's intended ministry in that hospital room that day was not a program, but an intersection of what God was doing with my personal brokenness and the brokenness in Tracy's life.
One caution: If you are not willing to be vulnerable with your own brokenness, it will be very difficult, if not impossible, for you to do something of eternal significance for the broken world around you. Don't be like the proud, clueless young minister in that hospital room. Admit that you are broken and humble yourself. Ask God to begin his healing work in you. It is only then that God will be able to work through you to heal others.

Meet the Author

Miles McPherson is senior pastor of the Rock Church in San Diego, one of the fastest growing churches in the country, and president of Miles Ahead Ministries. In 1982 McPherson was the first student from the University of New Haven to be named All American and be drafted into the NFL. But two years into his pro career with the San Diego Chargers, McPherson was battling a drug problem and living an immoral lifestyle. In a dramatic turn McPherson gave his life to Christ on April 12, 1984, and stopped using drugs instantly. He has appeared on many national television shows, including Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The O'Reilly Factor, and Fox & Friends. He and his wife have three children and live in San Diego, California.
