Embracing God’s Vision

Hillsong Worship made popular the song entitled “Hosanna” — a song in which the worshiper implores God:

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdom’s cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

As the year 2020 quickly approaches, my personal prayer is that God will indeed open my eyes and help me to see the world clearly — to give me 20/20 vision, at least in the spiritual sense. Unless we see clearly we are likely not going to respond proactively to the need around us.

Seeing clearly is also a prerequisite to having our heart broken for what breaks the heart of God — and responding compassionately. Unless our heart is broken for what breaks God’s heart, we will fail to make a difference in our world.

A broken heart is essential to fixing broken things. If we want to make a difference, then we must have our eyes opened and our heart broken for what breaks God’s heart. We must get in sync with the rhythm His divine heartbeat.

When we truly get our heart in sync with His, then we can no longer remain the same. We cannot remain passive or complacent or uninvolved. Instead we will be compelled to reorder our priorities to reflect God’s passions and to intentionally spend ourselves on His purposes.

A heart that is in sync with God’s heart is reflected in a life that is willing to go beyond — to do more than talk a good game but to actually get in the game.

Our missions ministry is committed to three key initiatives in the coming year.

First, we are committed to calling men to embrace God’s vision and design for biblical manhood. To that end we are working with four key national partners to conduct Men of Courage Biblical Manhood Summits in 2020 in Nepal, Cambodia, India, and Brazil.

Second, we remain committed to embracing God’s vision and mandate to move in the direction of the unreached. We have long-standing partnerships to ensure that twelve people groups on the planet gain greater access to the gospel.

Third, we will continue to embrace God’s vision and passion for moving in the direction of people in need. We are engaged in addressing several global concerns that transcend any particular culture — from the fight against human trafficking to championing the sanctity of human life.

Kingsland members will receive their copy of our 2020 missions strategy in the mail. Watch for your copy. Read it from cover to cover. And then pray about how you can give, go, and embrace God’s vision for the nations. Ask God to open your eyes, to break your heart, and to use you to make a difference.
