On A Clear Day You Can See Forever…
30 August 2014Posted by on
How far does your vision allow you to see? Do you only see what is right in front of you or are you blessed to see far down the road? Can you see what is coming towards you and where you are going so that you can make conscious choices about the direction of your life? Our lives depend upon being able to see clearly.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish…” (Proverbs 29:18 KJV)
The vision of purpose that the members of a church have collectively and as individuals determines whether their community thrives or dies. The vision, the purpose, gives us the clarity we need to step out in faith and trust that God will work through us so that we may be a blessing to others. I mean the faith that our discipleship, the way we love and serve Christ, will help other people to know Christ and experience a new life.
“What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God”
(Micah 6:8 NIV2010).
The question becomes, what is God’s guidance for us as we seek God’s purpose for our lives. What do we need to do today to be more effective at making disciples for Jesus for the transformation of the world?
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
(Proverbs 19:21 NIV2010)
