It is always helpful to step back sometimes and examine what you are doing and where you are going. We must always be reforming our lives and our ministry to be in line with God’s vision in scripture, and then we must see if we are 1) in line with that and 2) zealous for that! John Calvin famously said that “Zeal without knowledge is like a sword in the hand of a fool.” But the opposite is also true, knowledge without zeal doesn’t accomplish anything. Acting without thinking is chaotic, but thinking without acting is sterile, my mentor once said.
Restatement of the Vision: Why are we here?
Our Purpose is to "Help People Take the Next Step in their Walk With Christ"
Our heart is to see many people who do not know God begin their walk with Jesus Christ for the first time, and for those who have already begun their walk with Christ to be challenged to take the NEXT step in that walk! One day Jesus is going to come back and he will separate the sheep from the goats...on which side will you be?
Remember two things: 1) you will not regret the difficulty in heaven, 2) remember to rest in grace...He is our sufficiency and joy!
In Prayer Today:
Praise God for a new day to praise Him and serve Him.
