Sermons about Vision
We live in a world where every business, non-profit, government department and church all have vision statements. But, I recently read that lots of people are tired of churches talking about their vision statements. After all, doesn’t Jesus’ teaching boil down to love God, love others? That’s a fair question, especially since we have this story in the Bible and in Jesus own words.
Our high view of people and mission is only as high as our view of God.
The vision for the future of our Church. Called by Christ we need to step into bigger and greater things in Him as we go into our world making disciples and followers of Christ.
It’s seeing past where we currently are and moving toward what should be. And that takes vision. It’s not just direction setting for the sake of movement but because without vision, we get discouraged.
The Bridge wants to be church of movement. A church of movement allows God to work in them to do a great work. Join us!
Sermon 4 in the "R.E.A.C.H." series titled "Eye Exam"
Judges 6-8 Know it - Gideon was visited by an Angel of the lord while he was hiding from the Midianites. "Mighty man of Valor!" "Mighty hero!" "Mighty man of battle!" Was God's declaration. We need to know who God says we are! Then we can.. See it - God had plans and promises for Gideon. "You will defeat the Midian armies like you are only fighting one man." The key for Gideon and for us, is that we need to turn the promise into a picture - picture yourself walking in all the promises God has spoken over you! Own it - Get up, move, step up, start your journey towards the victory! Gideon's vision needed work, God help to shape, guide, direct and refine the vision, and He will do the same with you as you step up.
We have concluded the historical section of Daniel which fills the first six chapters. In those chapters we saw how God sovereignly and powerfully worked in a pagan country and through pagan kings to aid and benefit His captive people. When we turned to chapter 7 of Daniel we came to the prophetic half of the book. Chapter 7 was the pivotal chapter. In chapter seven, in the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel saw a vision of a lion, a bear, a leopard and a beast with ten horns. The vision covered human history from the time of Daniel to the end of time, in other words chapter seven ended looking as a time that is far beyond our time. Daniel 7 is an overview of history, of what God is doing and going to do. It is a tool for reading the newspaper and listening to the news and putting our history in a larger context. This book is a survival manual for the saints. It removes unrealistic expectations and gives realistic expectations. It takes away the element of surprise just as Jesus did for His disciples:
