I recently read that for a new idea or a new vision to take root in an organization you have to find the 16% that are 1) already doing the idea or vision (innovators) and 2) those who are more willing to adopt the new idea or vision (early adopters).
Let me ask you: does God need 16% or does he need more or does he need less to fulfill his vision for humanity? Does a local church need more or less?
On one hand he used one young lady who embraced a pregnancy that was divinely orchestrated and on the other, two spies (17%) couldn’t convince the other 10 spies to conquer the promised land.
You may not be like Mary (the innovator) who was not only willing but embraced the new idea of God; you may not be like Caleb and Joshua (early adopters) who were willing to risk their reputation for standing with God’s new idea; but do you, at least, have an open heart to the new things God wants to do through others and through his church? Or, will you be like the other 10 spies who stood in the way of God’s great plan?
I hope you choose to be an early adopter of God’s great plan for His church; but, if you don’t, that’s ok, just please stay out of His way.
