The Vision — If We Will Live

“Where there is no vision the people perish”
-Proverbs 29:18

This blog is about looking to Scripture to find out who God is, why we worship him, and how we flourish. It’s about what we must do, if we will live.

Jesus at the Center: 7 Ways to Keep the Greater Vision

“Vision leaks.” It’s a bucket with holes in it. As you guide yourself and others toward a goal you must constantly refresh the vision.

When asked, “What do you wish was easier about the Christian life?” many name the challenge of vision:

  • How can I keep Jesus at the center of my life?
  • How can I renew my passion for Him?
  • How can I filter out all the distractions?

The answer: Set your mind on who Jesus actually is, according to Scripture. Instead of reverting to the guesses of our imagination (2 Corinthians 10:5), we need to look at what the Bible says about Him.

Don’t Grow Weary

When the disciples urged Jesus to eat something, he said, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about. My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work” (John 4:32-34). 

There are days I feel this way. I love my work and I lose myself in it, even skipping a meal without noticing. When you get into the flow, you truly can say, “I have other food.” I’ve experienced that.

But there are other days too; the kind when the vision isn’t there.

One of the top questions Christians ask is how to deal with the tedium of life. Does this sounds like you?

God’s Gifts & Technology?

[guestpost]This is a guest-post from my friend Nate Curry.[/guestpost]

This post is merely something to get the 21st century believer thinking about or re-thinking his or her beliefs on the topic of God’s Spiritual gifts. Being the technology guru that I am I see a major correlation between technology and the way God communicates to us.

How to Understand the Bible More Clearly

Sometimes I worry that there are as many versions of “Christianity” as there are Christians. On matters of our faith, and especially on modern disputes, how can we understand the Bible more clearly?

When you see so many interpretations, you begin to wonder if it’s possible to know what the Bible even teaches about a given issue—until you actually read the Bible, that is.
