Remember The Vision

A Jon Post:

The vision is the Gospel of the Kingdom forcefully advancing.
The vision is the hand of Christ touching “the least of these”.
The vision is food for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, clothing the naked, taking in the stranger, and visiting the sick and imprisoned.

The vision is a ministry in south-west Angola. Children orphaned by AIDS, war, poverty, who are given a chance to have a father and mother. The vision is long days, late nights, dirty hands, breathing in and breathing out the life, love and pain of giving ourselves to others and to Christ.

Remember… oh friends and family, remember the vision.

It’s important. Vitally important.

I had just finished telling a young man in Africa of the love of Jesus Christ and about the intimate plans and relationship that Christ has for him, when he asked me why his parents and grandparents hadn’t heard this.  You see, this vision has been around for a long time. We are just a part of it and we affect it mightily. That young man’s parents were a part of the vision.
But some times people forget the vision. Ezekiel tells us that we have a heavy responsibility as Watchmen to speak and to warn people. Ezekiel metaphorically tells us that their blood will be on our hands. Don’t believe me? Read it. Read Ezekiel chapter 33. Read it. Verse 6… “His blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”
YOU are a watchman with the rest of us. You are not alone. We stand together. Together.
Be desperate with us. Dear friend be desperate with me. We cannot do this alone. STAND body of Christ… STAND!

Remember… oh friends and family, remember the vision.

It’s important. Vitally important.

Our entry into Web 2.0

Today I set up a blog for the first time. It’s been fun… it took me about 20 minutes to get WordPress set up and download and modify a theme and then apply it. Now you have to go through and make catagories, tags, and such. Let’s see if I can keep with it all. Layne will probably be the primary blogger (being the facebook/myspace/xanga pro she is). I just get to do the technical stuff and write when/what I feel like. Cool.
