A leader must have a vision. For Abraham it was the promise to be a great nation. For Moses it was to bring the people out of bondage and into the Promised Land. For Joshua it was to take the land. For David and Solomon it was to build the temple. For Nehemiah it was to rebuild Jerusalem. And, for Paul it was to bring the Gospel to the Gentiles. Each man had a vision which was based in the person and plan of God. The Christian needs such a vision. He needs to dig deep into the Scriptures to weed out the promises and plans of God and through prayer commit to a vision which will bring glory and honor to God. He needs to develop the vision into clear, tangible, realistic objectives without loosing perspective of the whole vision. The Christian must be committed enough to the vision to be willing to overcome all the obstacles which might hinder making the vision a reality.
