Do you plan as a family?

How many of know someone who was raised in church, but is no longer in church?

Today where going to talk about a concept that I believe (and the bible supports) can help fix that. 

Colossians 3 : 1 - 17 -

Put On the New Self

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity,passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.  On account of these the wrath of God is coming.  In these you too once walked, when you were living in them

      1. Core Values

Galatians 5 : 22-23 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

*Society tries to confuse us* 

Cherokee tale of 2 wolves- 
There is a battle between 2 wolves inside of us. 
Evil, anger, envy, greed, regret, arrogance, inferiority, jealousy. 
Joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, generosity, truth, faith. 
You know which one wins? The one you feed. 

Brother Kevin talked about it last week. You chose what your core values are. 
We are a new creation. The old is out, the new is in. Colossians. 
It's like when your wife goes shopping. 

     2. Vision Statement

Joshua 24 : 14-15

Choose Whom You Will Serve

 “Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness.Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.  And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Glasses. I didn't know something was wrong until I got my eyes checked. 
You won't know what's wrong unless you look where your going. 
If you don't have a vision, how do you know where your going?
The vision is your FUTURE. Forget the past, God has. 

Colossians 3 : 1 - 

Seek those things which are above, where Christ is 

     3. Mission Statement

The mission is how you accomplish the vision. 
*Challenge to get away and plan. 

If your not doing something with intent, prepare for an accident. 
You have to know where you want to go before you can decide how to get there. 
Everything we do in this life brings 1 of 2 things. 

I challenge you, there's no better time to change than today. 

Colossians 3 : 17
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
