Once upon a time there was a wise young prince, who loved his kingdom and his father the king dearly.
The people loved their king and his son, and would follow them anywhere, even into battle. One day the king was troubled and came to the prince with a request. ‘Son, many of our people are overseas and I’m concerned that they will not be able to enter our kingdom. I need you to go and make a path for them, and show them how to enter, as they are currently lost.’
The son was deeply honoured to be given such a task, but knew that it would not be easy to complete his mission.
The next day the son set out to find his people. When he found them they were in a land that was not their own and were treated as outcasts by the leaders of that place. The son desired to gather his people together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but the people were not willing. They had been in the land for too long and did not recognise the son as their prince.
The son loved his people and did not give up. He continued to go about trying to show them how to enter the kingdom. Some people received him gladly, especially those of them locked in prisons and bound in chains. The son set them all free and taught them how to remain on the path to the kingdom and follow him.
So much of today’s culture is designed to distract followers of Jesus Christ off the path to His Kingdom. Hey, with today’s media choices it often seems far easier for us to engage with the world than it is with Jesus.
Vision180 was birthed out of our love for Jesus Christ and our desire to see you become an absolutely passionate follower of Him. Following Christ is not an easy task in the world and often involves doing a 180 on today’s culture. Yes, it is possible!
Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 NLT
Way, way back when the Israelites experienced God’s power and love in their lives (mainly as they wandered through the desert), He would often have them create festivals, rituals or even build piles of stones to remind them of his goodness. All so they would not forget what it was to belong to Him.
Sometimes we need a reminder as well. That’s where Vision180 comes in.
We’re creating opportunities for you to connect with God every day, so that you can become a Jesus follower. A real one who knows how deeply He loves you – and then for that love to spill over to everyone who crosses your path! And even for you to figure out the calling He has for your life.
We know the impact God’s way of thinking has on your life so use us to surround yourself with the influence of Biblical perspective, rather than the constant negative drone of the world.
Listen to Vision180 radio, get into the habit of reading our daily devotions or the SoulFood Bible-in-a-year reading plan. Be part of the community. Live Different.
That’s what Jesus came to bring. And we can experience it abundantly when we learn to live God’s way and trust Him completely!
