Vision, Venturesome Faith, History

Want it or not, you and I make history everyday. Instead of letting our lives slip away purposelessly, let us seize God’s vision for our lives, so that we be a part of the Big Story of venturesome people with a venturesome faith in Him.

“Vision involves foresight as well as insight.

Vision leads to venture, and history is on the side of venturesome faith.

The person of vision takes fresh steps of faith across gullies and chasms,

not playing it safe but neither taking foolish risks.

“Take lessons from the past, but never sacrifice the future for the sake of mere continuity.

People of vision gauge decisions on the future; the story of the past cannot be rewritten.”

– J. Oswald Sanders
