WHO ARE YOU TO NEW VISION?-Romans 8:28
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Who are you to New Vision? Are you someone who came from the merger? Or did you come afterwards? Did you come from the community? Did you seek the church out? Are you concerned about the success of New Vision in the community? Are you doing everything you can to make it work? Are you as concerned about New Vision as you are your own home? Are you giving your fair share to help keep the church running? Do you pray for our success? Do you ask others to join us? Are you here only to see what you can receive? Or are you here to give what you can? Are you able to show God to someone else because of your experience at New Vision? As you think about these questions, please ask yourself, what else can you do to help New Vision reach the community? What more can you do to become the best steward that you can be?
