No new vision needed, thanks very much

We do not need a new vision, a shiny new scheme of work full of bells and whistles, a new idea of what objectives and goals should be. No great and tall king deserves our oohs and ahs.

What we need are ears to hear the word of God, eyes to see the work that the Lord Jesus placed before his people thousands of years ago, a work whose validity still continues to this day.

We need a humble heart that does not attempt to create new kingdoms, but that seeks first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.

We need willing submission to the Lord Jesus. We need obedience to the divine plan.

What we need is to embrace and participate in the great divine purpose that still engages the universe.

What we need is to restore our focus upon that great people called the Assembly of Separated Ones who are the exclusive Carriers of Good News.

This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Eph 3.11 NLT

Forget those who claim to provide a new vision for a new day. Remember him who established an eternal purpose and continues to pursue it to the end.
