Are We There Yet?

Whether or not we are aware of it, you and I have a race to run. It’s not a sprint and it’s not a marathon. Our race is a relay race. Each one of us receives the baton from someone who ran before us and each one of us needs to pass the baton to someone who is going to run after us. Those who came before us are counting on us to carry the baton forward to the next generation. Those who come after us are counting on us to bring the baton to their exchange zone and pass it forward to them.
At Lifehouse Victory Church we have a dream to grow a church where home is together and everyone belongs. Everyone has a part to play. In a relay race it does not matter how fast any one of the runners is. It does not matter how well any one of the runners hands off the baton. It does not even matter whether or not the runners imagined themselves as relay runners when they were growing up. What matters is that everyone runs their leg of the race, that they stay in their lane, and that they hand off the baton cleanly to the next runner. The team that can do all of that and stay focused on the end goal is that team that wins the relay.
Vision allows you and I to stay in our lane even when other lanes look more exciting or more rewarding. Vision allows you and I to receive the baton from those who came before us and run our leg, even when its hard, when it costs us something. Vision allows us to hand off the baton cleanly to the next runners even when we don’t understand their generation and wish they would just get a job and grow up and take life more seriously.
At Lifehouse Victory Church we have a Vision and we have a race to run. We want to help you run your race and run it well. Do you see the Vision we see?
