The following are some notes that I have taken from the Renewing Your Mind podcast of R.C. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries. The title of his message is The Goal of Spiritual Growth. It can be accessed for free on iTunes.
“In the reality of our daily lives, I have discovered a very simple point that I am sure most of you discovered long before I did and that is that nothing usually happens to our dreams if they are never translated into goals.
But for achievement to take place – for movement and progress to happen – that dream has to become a goal. Otherwise it becomes simply an idle fantasy fit for contemplation in the midst of sleep.”
“The second thing that has to happen for a dream to become real is that people have to wake up and they have to move in the direction of action.”
