Pastor's Pen


The Pastor’s Pen!!!

Proverbs 29:18 says, “where there is No Vision, the people perish.”  (KJV)  Another translation, “Where there is no revelation from God, we drift aimlessly.”  We need a new Vision for Trinity Baptist Church.  As a Church, where do you think God wants us to be, or what do you think God wants us to be doing 5, 10, or 20 years from now?  We need a New Vision from God.

We need a New Vision because others have Failed for Lack of Vision.  A generation of Israelites did not get to enter Canaan because they failed to see how God could take them into the Promised Land.  All they could see was the dangers, “there’s giants out there.”  Under the Judges, everyone did what was right in their own eyes, there was no king & no revelation from God.  We don’t want to fail like the Churches that reject new members or new methods, or simply because we’ve “Always done it like that.”

We need a New Vision in order to claim the Promises of God.  By faith Abraham followed God, not knowing where he was going, but God was leading.  Jesus saw people as sheep without a Shepherd, lost & dying, needing a Savior?  God doesn’t want anyone to die & go to Hell.  Are we “Walking on the Water,” stepping out in Faith, doing what God called us to do?  We claim the Promises of God by faithfully following Him.

We need a New Vision so we can be the Church God wants us to Be.  We need Jesus Followers, committed to a Heavenly Vision.  A New Vision calls for a deeper Commitment to Jesus, a stronger Emphasis on Discipleship, a Higher Priority on Evangelism & Missions, building stronger Relationships & Train & Empower everyone for Ministry doing what God called us to do.

The 7 Last Words of a Dying Church “We've never done it that way before!”

Where are We Going?
