Ever wonder what it means to have vision? More importantly, have you ever struggled to see your vision realized?
One of the more amazing stories of vision and vision realized in the past 30 years or so is the story of Steve Jobs. In 1979, he was in the Palo Alto Research Center, a research arm of Xerox Corp. While there he was seeing a vision that Xerox was missing. Later in life, while interviewed for his biography, Steve would say, "It was like a veil being lifted from my eyes. I could see what the future of computing was destined to be."
As important as that moment was, it would then take Steve over 4 years of moments to launch the Macintosh computer which was arguably the dawning of the era of the user-friendly personal computer. It led to more from Apple, and it led to Windows from a guy named Gates.
I would argue that Jobs had a P.L.A.N.:
A P.urpose to usher in a new era of computing in the culture of IBM.
A desire to make a L.asting change in this industry that would have user-friendliness.
A.chievable strategies and goals that would get him there.
And the resolve to take the N.ext steps every day to see his PLAN realized.
I would argue that the Jesus had a bigger P.L.A.N. that he saw realized in his earthly ministry.
And I would argue that you and your church can see your vision realized too.
