Vision

Last night, Pastor Todd challenged us to have a vision for our life. Not just to have a vision, but to write it down. We were examining the passage in 2 Peter chapter 1.

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall.“–2 Peter 1:3-10

He asked us to write down a vision for our life based on these verses. I did write a vision based on 2 Peter and also incorporated my understanding of the Bible. Creating a vision or a mission statement for my life seemed to be very consistent with what my administration class was also teaching earlier in the year–If we want to change we must set up a plan.

This is what I wrote and is subject to change (perhaps even daily):

A man who fights daily for joy, strives to show brotherly affection to all, dying to selfish ambitions to make Christ known in order that I may not waste my life or fall into sin, but to show my life is characterized by Jesus Christ.

By God’s grace this is what my life will show…

In Prayers,

-Justin
