I am a bit tired this afternoon, but am getting ready to go to our church AWANA program. Listened to this and got a vision reminder that I'm after my little piece of every kid hearing God's appeal to join His everlasting Kingdom. Thanks, TimP.S. Dozens of those AWANA kids are coming because of YFCR :)
Liz,That is awesome! I am so fired up and ready to share this whole dream like I was sharing it for the first time. This recent trip, and my trying to teach Alberto how to share vision, was such a wonderful reminder for me...I'd forgotten how much I love to "visionize"! (As my friend Scott calls it.)Isn't it great to do something eternal?
I love that YFCR has such a broad reach. :-) A lot of people take an either/or approach to reaching people for Jesus. Either they are focused on "home" missions or foreign. I think it's great that you guys embrace both. That's what it's all about!Don't forget that email you were going to send me about the bricks!
Thanks for the comment, Mandy...I will share it all with you! I promise!
I need to remember that we struggle not against flesha nd blood with these kids. Eph 6:10-12.I need some visioneering of my own. Many days I am just putting one foot in front of the other in obedience to God.Vision us Tim! Monday night would be a good time!
Mt 28:19-20: make deciples. How? build relationships based upon commitments and follow through that translate into trust and reflect the unity of our faith with Christ that then (John 17:20-26)points to the truth that God sent Christ, and that God loves us just like He loves His son Jesus. We are to brilliantly blind the world with grace, mercy, and love that reflects the glory, love, and unity of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. How? one bite at a time. Pick up your knives and forks brothers and sisters and prepare for a heavenly love feast of service to those that your Creator has placed in your path this day. How? Renounce selfishness and self centeredness in all its forms, afflictions, and repent. Take up the sword that is the Word and weapon of God and gird your heart, mind, and body for battle...the battle and war that is fought by prayer.. and only prayer..for it is a spiritual war..that is only won by prayer and not of the flesh. please forgive me for the sin of pride and idolatry that suggests that i can preach to the preacher. please forgive me. it is as if, no..not as if, but is only one thing...that through words and works that i seek to validate my worth and worthiness to the Kingdom...that through my efforts i am worth something in the eyes of....not God...but man...that is my single biggest struggle and sin....the fear of man that rules over the fear of God...please forgive me..and pray for me.
