When asked by people “What is your vision for the church?”, I feel so obligated to lay out the future before their eyes. I can’t see ten seconds into the future. I can’t tell what the next sentence in this paragraph will be until it is done.
Oswald says it so well, “You do not know what you are going to do; the only thing you know is that God knows what He is doing.” – Oswald Chambers
I think all of us ought to resolve to never again ask a man what His vision is for the work that God is doing . . .His work . . . the work that He alone can do.
Perhaps the good question would be to ask what a person’s vision of God is. Great leaders throughout the Bible answered that question as they gave us
what they were given by God.
A bigger vision is surely and sorely needed but not one of what we can do in the future but of a God who is bigger than we can possibly conceive and of what he has laid before us . . . right now . . . to do for His Purposes.
