OPENING STATEMENT: In 2020 God’s vision for you and Oceans Utd will be 20/20 which stands for perfect vision. 2020 will be fresh, sharp, and precise. Just like a diamond
I BELIEVE IN 2020 WILL BE LIKE A DIAMOND YEAR. WE WILL OPERATE WITH THE 4 CS THAT DEFINE A DIAMOND: CLARITY (We will have clarity by seeing things through His lens), CUT (We will be cut above- showing a spirit of excellence), COLOR (We will radiate the color of His Love), CARAT (We will find our worth in Him)
Vision is the ability to see beyond what your eyes can see.
Did you know that Oceans Utd has vision- defined by a statement:
Our vision is to share God’s borderless, and unconditional love to all people with the hope of seeing their lives SAVED, TRANSFORMED, HEALED, EMPOWERED, and SERVING in the areas God has called them!
- As you can see- It’s all about people. You have a role to play in it.
Did you know that God has a vision statement for your life?
For I know the PLANS I have for YOU,” says the Lord. “They are PLANS for good and not for disaster, to give YOU a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11 NLT)
For YOU are His WORKMANSHIP (MASTERPIECE), created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that YOU should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10 NKJ)
- God has a plan and a vision and YOU are at the center of it
- In His vision for you, he calls you His masterpiece
STATEMENT: IN 2020 GOD WANTS YOU SEE YOURSELF WITH 20/20 CLARITY. He wants you to see yourself the way that He sees you: A Masterpiece. A Diamond.
STATEMENT: If the word for 2020 is clarity of a diamond, I would dare to say that the greatest enemy of 2020 will have to be fog. Fog will stop you from believing that God has a plan, a vision for your life. Fog: past, guilt, shame, condemnation, comparison, offense, busyness of life
STATEMENT: Bringing clarity is God’s responsibility. YOUR RESPONSIBILITY IS TO CLEAR THE FOG (repeat slow). How do we do that?
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8)
- LIGHT IS THE GREATEST ENEMY OF FOG. When the sun rises, the fog dissipates
- You draw close by reading the word, by developing a love for the word of the God.
- The light of His Word will drive out the fog
- You draw close to God by developing an active prayer life
Those who are PLANTED in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. 14 They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be FRESH and FLOURISHING (Psalm 92:13-14 NKJ)
- Being planted in the church where God has called you means: BEING ABLE TO SEE GOD’S VISION OUT OF BOTH EYES! (show picture of 2020 glasses)
- You will be able to see with clarity the vision God has for your life and you will also be able to see the vision has for the church and your place or role in it.
- THEY EXIST AT THEIR BEST 20/20 WHEN THEY ARE TOGETHER
- Similarly you are able to see, to function at your very best when both vision are working together.
STATEMENT: Together- United they make the vision 20/20!
