What is God's Vision for our Church?
I like this translation of Ephesians 1:9-10 – Macdonald's Idiomatic Translation:
9 God divulged to us the mystery of his will, expressing his good purpose that he projected in Christ 10 for the planned climax of the historical epochs :… the subordinating of everything in the heavens and on earth under Christ.
God has let us in on His amazing mystery – we don't need to wonder what the purpose of life is. That means we don't have to waste time, chase the wrong thing, and get frustrated. Rather, we can enter into the fullest enjoyment of Life.
We desire to lead every member towards the fullest experience of God's Good Plan… to experience Jesus reigning as King over every part, in every place and at every moment
