"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ." (Colossians 3:23-24)
Vision is the stuff of leaders and prophets--this is true. You may not see yourself in the special class of a pioneer-leader but here is a reality every bonafide Christian must take to heart:
As a "follower" of Jesus Christ, you have the power of influence upon others who are following behind you.
The very essence of leadership is inspiration. May we all be leaders in this sense.
This Sunday, Pastor Jeff will be sharing a message to turn the soil of your heart and find a treasure there. As a Christian, you, yes you, have a God-given gift, a certain inspiration that is able to be harnessed for the kingdom. We pray that God will help you to SEE it. We pray that God will help you to SHARE it with children, with youth and with this ministry.
Two weeks hence, we have a very unique Visionary Breakfast, on Saturday, January 20th at 9am. You are invited to be an active participant in it by sharing what you see can happen in the ministry at Southland Christian Church. At the close of the service this Sunday, a sign-up opportunity will be given.
Child care will be provided.
The cost will be covered by a freewill offering.
