For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. - Hebrews 11:10 NAS
Yesterday I asked, do you have a future aim for your life? Now I’ll add: How about for your children? For your spiritual development? Your ministry? Your career? Your family? Have you ever articulated what your future, as a follower of Christ, might look like? Are you leaving it up to chance? Are you allowing others to determine your future? Are you living your life by intentional design headed in the direction God wants you to go, or are you just living by default as you follow the crowd?
It’s been said, “Aim at nothing and you’ll hit it every time.” That’s not how men and women of faith should lead their lives. We aren’t to be passive, tossed back and forth by the ideas of others.
Sometimes attending conferences can help you define the target and articulate where you should be heading. I hope you will consider attending a conference at your church or one affiliated with your church in the coming year. In the meantime, I hope that each one of you, whether you are just getting started in your Christian journey, or are a seasoned veteran far down the path, will discover a vision for your future that will inspire you to give all you’ve got in building God’s kingdom and bringing Him glory.
