Keeping the Vision Alive
Ephesians 1:15-23 June 12, 2005
Like vv. 3-14, this is all one sentence in the Greek.
“For this reason” – because of all the blessings of God which are his vision for you, I pray that you might keep the vision alive.
Vision – see thru the fog/focus
Joan – lens implant/clarity
John 17 – Jesus vision for us in prayer

Church must reinvent itself every 40 years/time for Mayfair as we recount our history coming up to our centennial
There was vision when the church started
There was vision 50 years later with new addition
There needs to be new vision now
The power for our vision comes from God’s resurrection power in Jesus when he raised him from the dead
What is your vision for your life?
What do the ‘eyes of your heart’ see for Mayfair?
We must keep God’s vision for us alive in our hearts.
