VISION IS BIGGER
“When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” 6 He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.” ~ John 6:5-6
The soul never thinks without a mental image. ~ Aristotle
Direction, not intention, determines destination. ~ Andy Stanley
1. We are facing the hardest test of our lives.
A. We are responsible to take it.
B. We are responsible to pass it.
C. We are responsible to share it.
Jesus’ vision is always bigger than ours: open our spirit, open our thoughts, open our faith.
Consider the crowd’s needs.
Consider the amount of supplies needed
Consider the servants heart of imagination needed
2. We are a people of faithfulness.
A. Faith can impact our imagination. (In whose image were we created?)
B. Faith influences our supplier.
We cannot miss this opportunity.
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. ~ Aimee Lehto
