What is SYNC about?
1. The big idea -- the huge thing God is doing
SYNC is built on one main idea—something huge and ancient is going on in our world today, though most people are clueless about it. God is orchestrating a campaign to heal, bless, and connect the world. Jesus Christ is the leader of that campaign.
2. The whole SYNC process in two words -- "SYNC me!"
Once we get the big idea of God's campaign, we go with it. We sign up for the campaign team by saying to Jesus, "SYNC me." The rest of the SYNC site helps you unpack those two words. If you ever get lost in the details, come back here. This is it.
BREAKING: There is no elephant!
God's campaign to transform this world into the world of our dreams is the elephant in the modern world. People say, "I don't see anything. What God? What campaign?"
Or they assume they know God's campaign strategy already--tell people the rules, tell them to be more loving, bless them when they do it, punish them when they don't. That strategy is so simplistic, boring, and ineffective that many people can't stand it. They have no motivation at all to join a campaign with such a lame strategy.
But when people see what God's campaign is really about--healing, blessing, and connecting the world--and when they start appreciating how complex, surprising, and brilliant his actual campaign strategy is, many want to get on board. They say, "SYNC me." "SYNC me" means, "OK, King Jesus. I trust you. SYNC me with the rhythm you put into the story of the world. SYNC me with what you intended when you did those game-changing events long ago. Include me in your campaign team and give me my campaign assignment."
"SYNC me" is simply a 21st century way of saying exactly what Jesus said in the middle of the pattern prayer he gave to his followers in the 1st century--"As in heaven, so on earth." (Mt. 6.10) Or, "SYNC earth with heaven." He was starting a campaign, always calling people to "follow him" as the campaign leader. That prayer was one of his tools for recruiting new people for the campaign team and equipping them for campaign work.
The entire SYNC project is about helping people to open up to God by praying that prayer authentically and often. When they do, they welcome heaven to earth and discover a new identity in the process. They are members of a campaign team, caught up in Jesus's mission to heal, bless, and connect the world.
As a campaign team member, say "SYNC me!" to Jesus Christ every chance you get--first thing in the morning, last thing at night, going out the door to work, before any other SYNC activity you may do, with family, friends, team, etc. Take it as your new mantra, and discover what it means and how it feels to be part of a campaign that is so ancient, so futuristic, and so good.
