We are gearing up at my church for our annual vision offering next Sunday. The Xcel 2020 vision is one full of faith, all about the future and it’s big enough that requires all of the family to participate in and play their part.
Vision is the capacity to see beyond what we can see with our eyes. To be people of vision takes faith.
Vision is about painting a picture of the future. What could this part of God’s family look like in 5 years time? One thing is for sure, it’s an exciting time to be part of what God is doing.
Xcel 2020 is all about growth, helping more people, connecting as a church family more effectively, training leaders for life and increasing our influence as a resource to the church. Lots to be praying about including new locations, Xcel Bangalore launches in 2016, more Groups, new community based initiatives, leadership development & life courses plus an Xcel album too.
This is my church and I love that I am a part of something that has BIG vision and is making room for me and everyone else who calls Xcel home the opportunity to partner with them in seeing it fulfilled. Next Sunday I not only bring my financial seed to sow into the vision but my gifts, talents and whatever else God would have need of to see people reached for Him.
Like I wrote yesterday, we only live this life once, so what are we waiting for? Only what we do for Christ will last. My true reward and legacy isn’t going to be how good I was at my job or even how good I was at raising my family. Instead I believe it will be from how I invest in the Kingdom and be about those things that Jesus love ~ His Father, people and His Church.
So, let’s do it! Let’s do God proud and honour Him with everything we have. Let’s make the most of our time and make a difference while we are for Him. After all, He has definitely made a difference to all of us.
