Imagine: Universe with no purpose; railway tracks with no destination; ship with no destination; a church with no vision. As a local church we have a purpose or there is no point and everyone might as well do what they like. The writer of proverbs reminds us that “Where there is no revelation (vision), people cast off restraint…” (Prov 29:18). I have a vision at Ezekiel’s Online blog to “Share Christ & Do Good to ALL People”.
The vision is short & simple but achievable if we all play our part as individuals. The prophet Habakkuk reminds us in chapter 2:2 to “Then the LORD answered me, “Write the vision. Make it clear on tablets so that anyone can read it quickly” (God’s Word Translation). How will the vision come to pass? When we see Christ for who He is and let Him dwell in us richly. It will then be a natural thing for us to share and do good because of His supernatural power at work in us. We also need to actively Reach, Serve, Share and Equip others. The extent to which we can achieve this is dependent on all of us… including you. Don’t hold back the work by doing nothing, but give God your everything and let Him work through you. Together, this community can
be won for Christ!
