God changed the brusque, abrupt zealot Saul, transforming him into Paul the Apostle to the Gentiles. That was God’s vision for this man. What is God’s vision for you? This week Digging Deeper looks at God’s plan for your life.
We all have boundaries that prevent us from moving beyond the norm. But God is never bound by the norm. Vision requires an individual to be courageous enough to move outside the boundaries. What was the great concern that led Nehemiah to move outside his boundaries? What was his boundary preventing him from doing anything about this condition? Why was this concern different than others that he might have heard about? What did he do about the condition of Jerusalem in this text? What does that tell you about vision versus action? What should you do with your concerns about life, church or ministry?
