A few months ago I paid a visit to the eye doctor. I couldn’t order more contacts without a new prescription so I booked the appointment.
Over the course of the appointment, I looked through a lot of lenses and read a lot of letters.
I walked out of there with a little less money in my pocket but a prescription for eyeglasses and contacts.
I was once again reminded that as I have aged, my vision has gotten fuzzier.
Things are not as clear as they were during my teenage years and I need some help with my vision.
This can happen in our own spiritual lives and in the life of our church, so this Sunday, we begin a four-week series on the vision for New Life called, 20/20.
Seriously, we pray for every man, woman and child to experience and know the love of Jesus in Kansas City. We dream of the day we can take an active role to bring about spiritual and societal transformation so that,
…the Gospel continues to spread,
…deeds of mercy and justice flourish,
…disciples of Jesus are developed,
…missional community is enjoyed and multiplying,
…family life is valued,
…the Church experiences a renewed reverence for God,
and true followers of Jesus are known for their concern for the Gospel
and are relied upon for the well-being of the city and its culture.
Over the course of this series, our sermons will cover the topics of worship, community, mission and generosity. Additionally, we will ask you to step up and in to a greater role in the church and the Kingdom.
I hope you ask the Lord to clarify the role He has for you to join into His vision for you as a part of New Life and beyond.
If you are traveling or can’t make it to church on Sunday, be sure to catch our Livestream on Youtube. It’s the next best thing to actually being here!
