“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” – Helen Keller
Vision is a picture of the future. When you look at your future, what do you see? Do you see more people problems? Or do you see peace, love and joy with others? Just because you have problems now, doesn’t mean you can’t have a vision for a preferred future. But you must do some things today to impact your tomorrow.
The Apostle Paul loved a problem church with problem people. As I’ve stated it before, they were a beautiful mess. Paul knew the Corinthians could be better. So he chose to see them as God wanted them to be.
This Sunday, October 13, I will conclude not only my Fall sermon series, People Problems. but also a two year journey through 1 and 2 Corinthians (A Beautiful Mess).
This Sunday I will talk about “Vision” from 2 Corinthians 13. These are Paul’s final written words to the Christians in Corinth. He will warn them and encourage them. I believe these two principles are so important for each of as we contemplate our future. We need to be warned of the dangers that are on our path. Yet, we also need to be encouraged to move forward. We must have a balance of negative and positive if we want to pursue a godly vision. You will be encouraged as we conclude this wonderful series.
Join me this Sunday @ 10:30 a.m.
