Where there is no vision, people perish
John 3:3 “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a man be born again, he can not see the Kingdom of God.”
15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints,
16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers:
17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,
18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power
“It is easier to serve God without vision, easier to work for God without a call, because then you are not bothered by what God requires; common sense is your guide, veneered with Christian sentiment. But if once you truly hear the full commission of Jesus Christ, the awareness of what God wants will be your goal from that point on, and you will no longer be able to work for Him on the basis of common sense.”
J. B. Phillips – “We are asking God that you may see things, as it were, from His point of view by being given spiritual insight and understanding.”
“Vision is getting on your heart what God has on His heart.”
God has people on His heart!
“Where there is no vision, people perish.”

No Vision = total failure
Limited Vision = little success
Vision - plan - action = only a dream
Vision + plan – action = a haunting dream (guilt)
Vision + plan + action = a spiritually productive ministry
The most important thing in your life is to have and pursue a vision that agrees with God!
