Last Winter, the Hinkle family did what many persons in Ohio do for a break from the cold, ice and snow, we traveled to Florida. While there we discovered a place called Disney World and enjoyed it with children, and grandkids. It was a magical time together. Walt Disney dreamed and designed EPCOT; the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. He envisioned the perfect city of 20,000 residents using the most modern advanced technologies.
Unfortunately, Walt Disney died before his dream was realized. EPCOT was so complex that no one else caught the dream or had an idea what to do with the blueprints after Walt was gone. What Walt intended as a living breathing perfect city would become an entertainment center for tourists to visit.
Just like Disney, Jesus left a blueprint for His church. It was so vast, marvelous, and innovative. The Body of Christ vision and blue print was designed to permeate and transform the whole world.
The problem, shortly after Jesus’ death, His followers began to lose the vision, couldn’t wrap their minds around such a magnificent plan. Rather than a community of loving, passionate followers of Christ dedicated to demonstrating the power of the Christ-transformed life in a dark world, they began to do what they knew best, construct buildings, run organizations, & build entertainment centers that would hopefully draw the crowds to hear the story but miss the transforming power of Christ. Would you hear fresh the dream, and help your Church reclaim Christ’s vision?
See you in Church this Sunday,
