Part 1: Vision Sunday 2019
February 10, 2019 • Stu Cameron
Stu shared with us on Vision Sunday around the parable of the talents. The full sermon is available on our website and app: church.nu/live --- Spoken Word // Vision Sunday 2019 What are you afraid of, and from what exactly do you hide? Why does the message burn brightly on Sunday, but on Monday hides deep inside? Who told you to be silent, afraid of hurting or slight? When what would help a world in darkness, is a people who chose to be light. Too long has the darkness gone without an answer. Too long has our world been trapped by its evil cancer. As Christians in our world, shine their light dim. Afraid that others might be offended by a fearless messenger of the king. We wouldn’t hold back the cure for some ailment or sickness. Then why do we hide the truth from those who need our witness? Have we so easily forgotten, have those words slipped our mind? That when our saviour promised power, we could the powers of darkness bind. The Spirit that lies inside us breaks opens graves. Unshackles the oppressed, restores the broken unscathed. It reminds us our worst day isn’t our last of all. And that there is forgiveness for any, whenever we fall. Why do we imitate the sickness, that we try to resolve? Our darkness won’t drive out darkness, only with light will it dissolve. This light, of the gospel, is the hope we share. And there is nothing else in the world that can bring that power to bear. For this world to find hope now is the time, this is the hour. For us, His beloved children, to stop being ashamed of this power. For we, his imago dei, to seize tomorrow for the lost. We weren’t saved to be seated but sent, no matter the cost. So uncover your gifts people of God. Use the gifts for his glory. That your life might shine a better truth invite others to a greater story. No matter the opposing force, power or might. May we choose to stand on the rock. May we choose to be light.
