Over the next 3 years, we will take a journey that will challenge us to imagine! The dictionary says imagination is “forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses. “The Bible uses another term for that: Faith.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1)
The writer of Hebrews goes on to tell us that the earliest followers of God “obtained a good testimony” through faith (Hebrews 11:2). We’re also instructed that “without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that he exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
By faith, we believe that God will reward those of us who diligently seek Him. As a body of believers, we want God to plant incredible imaginings in our minds for the role each of us will play to further His message through The Church Without Walls! We believe that God is able to do immeasurable more than our human minds can image.
So it is with this in mind that we begin “Our Journey” of imaging things not yet seen! Our Journey Capital Stewardship Campaign will be an experience of prayer, faith gratitude, sacrifice, vision and commitment.
“Our Journey” of prayer will lead us far past asking, deep into new paths of seeking God’s way for our lives. Along those paths we will discover doorways – places where choices and decision must be made. Do we have the courage and commitment to knock on those doors? And when those new doorways are opened, will we step into a new way of life?
Knocking on the doors that God would open to us may well lead us down paths that we never imagined! We do not know what God has in store for . us when we begin such a journey, but one thing is certain – “Our Journey” of prayer will change our lives. After all, changing us has always been the real power of prayer.
