Here is a talk from Chan at an earlier date; still, his focus and what he points to is a focus on Jesus and the mission being “the thing”.
“When you sin it doesn’t just effect you. Do you understand that? It keeps you from ministering to so many people. It keeps you from your mission.”
“Unless you’ve got a goal– a purpose– other than ‘not sinning’, you’re never gonna make it. You’ll get exhausted.”
“I really believe that a lot of people in the Christian life are really exhausted because they spend their whole life running away from something but not running towards something.”
Whether you are thinking of taking the One Year Challenge or not, consider this idea: that you are meant to be part of a spiritual temple for God that is set apart and totally different than the world (Ephesians 2:22).
