Developing a 2020 Vision for the Lord (Part 1)

20 Dec

Friends: What an incredible possibility awaits us as we anticipate a brand new year — 2020. When I hear the expression “2020,” I can’t help but think of one’s eyesight. I remember memorizing the doctor’s eye chart when I was in high school, not knowing that I would one day need to wear glasses all the time!

As you and I face a new year, a year that will challenge us to have 20/20 vision, may I suggest several major truths that we must understand and focus on if we are to be faithful followers of the Lord Jesus? I want to use the eyes God has given me to see His plan for me in this coming year.

What is His plan for you and me in this New Year? Let’s notice this morning that His plan is to make us more like His dear Son. We read in —

Romans 8:29 “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”

If you and I are to daily be conformed to the image of His Son, we must study what the Scriptures say about His Son!  We also read in 2 Corinthians 3:18 “And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

The follower of Jesus is to “and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” (Col. 3:10).

Would you pray the following prayer with me this morning? “Lord, I want to become more like my Savior in 2020. Please work on me through Your Holy Spirit and Your Word to bring about some serious growth in my likeness to Your Son. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
