Tonight I am at the Church Planting Missionary Forum in Atlanta. We hear a great message from the pastor of First Baptist Jonesboro, GA. His text was on the Macedonian call on Paul’s life.
His sermon was three points:
Paul had a vision from God that mobilized him to proclaim the gospel. Maybe I am a really simple guy but I think this message is for all of us. As Christians, we need to have God’s will revealed in our lives so we can be mobilized to spread His Word.
Another verse quoted tonight was Proverbs 29:18 which says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The Hebrew word for vision is to have a revelation from God. We all need to hear from God in our lives. Tonight’s message has really encouraged me to be connected with the Lord.
I encourage all of you reading this blog to get in touch with God to know what God’s vision is for your life and for the people under your leadership. Being in touch with God must happen before we mobilize our resources.
May the Lord reveal His calling on your life as you provide leadership in your family and church.
