own the vision
Our overarching guide this year is vision. We have talked a lot about vision. This morning we will take a longer and more extensive look about the nature of clear vision, the affect it has on our mission, and what scripture has to offer us in this subject. The language of mission, values, and mission is often associated with the corporate culture, and we tend to resist such things in the church. However, I think if we look closely, we will find that it is not only helpful, but concurrent with scripture and God’s will for his people to be a people of mission and vision. Our God has set the bar high for his people. As visionary people of God, we will place ourselves in a position to be more aware of the mission he has for his church, the opportunities he places before us, and the guidance of his Holy Spirit in our lives. Tonight, we will continue in the life of Elijah and seek to learn to listen more intently to the Spirit within us. Learning to listen will keep us in a place where we are able to hear his call.
