An Email Chuck Sent To a Young Life Staff Friend

Unifying Values Application

I believe that the best training for all of Young Life  leaders is in helping them to write down all aspects of their job and relationship with the Lord in a first person present tense way and in the most successful way they can invision or describe.  Then in going over it daily and in the process of "putting on that description,” they are changed into its likeness.  As they learn how to make it even better, they change the wording to make it more in tune with their growth. 

I do not know any more valuable, effective or quicker way to grow in the Lord and in the skills of our ministry or work.  It takes a little time to understand how to do it but then it is exciting and so life changing.  It basically is taking the Lord at His Word and obeying it just as He says.  He promises that if we obey Him that He will reveal Himself to us. John 14:21.  That is living!  I am still doing it daily and it keeps me in the race with the Lord and with others.

I would like to think with you on how we can really get it across and make it a habit.  I absolutely do not think it is a clever idea that someone had.  It is the clear admonition found everywhere in Scripture to obey the Lord... and it pleases Him and blesses us and those around us.

This is crazy but this is more valuable to growth and training than to have someone looking over "you" and telling "you" what to do and how to do it.  This enables you to watch and correct your own growth as you go.

I think everyone would love this concept of personal growth and training.  Probably some are already doing it.  I know that to honor and bless this process is tremendously fruitful for individuals and the ministry.

I wonder if a few of the leaders are willing to work with me in learning this great process of obedience to the Lord (John 14:21), "And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit" 2 Cor. 3:18

I am looking forward to seeing you.  I hope you are having fun.

I think I told you that we found out recently that Hollie is having triplets.  I was hoping for a basketball team but three is good for a pick up game.

Hope to see you soon,

Chuck Reinhold
