Acts 9:1-22

Today we are talking about vision, specifically what is God’s vision for you as an individual; and what God's vision is for us as a church?

Vision is so powerful! It’s always fun to look into the future and see what could be. Maybe you were one of those kids who could just let your imagination go wild, especially during math class! But vision isn’t just for the dreamers of the world, we all want a look at the future, and I think I can speak for all of us when I say we all want a great future. We want a better tomorrow. We don’t want to stay where we are; we want to make progress. 

As Christians, this involves God’s plans for our lives. In fact, it should be central to how we see the future. God wants to be involved in our future. In fact, what we are supposed to become was determined long ago according to Ephesians 2:10 (NIV), “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

It’s up to us to walk in this reality and that’s what today's message is all about both for you as an individual and for us as a church family.

Today we are looking at a story in the book of Acts. This is a story about the Apostle Paul. He went by Saul and then later started going by Paul, so as I say Saul or Paul, you can know I’m talking about the same person.
