Eighteen hundred invitations are in the mail for the upcoming nuptials between Prince William and Kate Middleton. Many notables are checking the post daily.
Currently, an even more Magnificent Invitation is being issued. It is the invitation into Your Flourishing Life. Some call it Destiny. Others call it Convergence. It is, indeed, the call to Magnificence. Here it is in its simplest form.
Convergence is that Place in the Present where your history of Preparation meets God’s timely Invitation to step intentionally into the Magnificence for which you were prepared.
Convergence = (your history of preparation) + (God’s timely invitation) + (stepping intentionally into your magnificence)
Another word for magnificence is Purpose or Destiny.
CONVERGENCE connects your PAST with your FUTURE through an invitation in the PRESENT.
The invitation is issued by the God “who WAS, who IS, and is TO COME.” Revelation 4:8
God’s invitation comes in the cluster of community! It has to do with preserving the community. Many receive the invitation. Only a remnant responds. It will cost to respond.
Convergence does not come without challenge! To accept the royal wedding invitation, those invited will RSVP, rearrange schedules, spend vast sums on airfare, limousines, hotels, food, clothing, new hair styles, manicures, teeth whitening and the list goes on.
But that remnant who responds to the Magnificent Invitation and accepts the challenges (20% according to Fuller Theological Seminary research) will positively impact entire nations.
Convergence is the ultimate invitation into Your Flourishing Life.
Convergence is happening all around you.
Questions to Ponder:
When the invitation arrives, how will you recognize it?
What will you drop to accept the invitation?
How will God know you have accepted the invitation?
