Our sermon texts were: John 4 and Hebrews10:19-24 (Hold fast - stir one another up to love and good deeds – persevere)
Purpose, Goals, Intentionality
VIM - Vision, Intention, Means - Dallas Willard
"Without VIM (or purpose goals, and intentionality) being understood, the inner person is left substantially as it was, as it is in non-Christians… That is why today you find many Christians circling back to non-Christian sources to resolve the problems of their inner life." Dallas Willard (these are essential if we are to make progress in Christian spiritual formation) (click here for an article by Dallas explaining his V-I-M principle)
Purpose – To Know God (My soul shall not find rest until it rests in Thee – Augustine)
People need Jesus. They need his love and mercy and grace. In this year ahead, let’s be determined and intentional to make Jesus known!
