Captured By Vision Insight 090 By George Bullard
People with vision know they must leave the 99 and focus on the one. People without vision primarily see the 99. We are challenged on this in Luke 15:14.
Typically, congregations at least a generation old tend to focus more on the 99 connected with them than those who are not. Unfortunately, they come across as anti-missional and anti-evangelism. They likely did not adopt this attitude intentionally. They believe faithfulness by longer tenured and older people should be rewarded. This is their congregation and they want to be served.
They become vision killers. They especially have a hard time with vision focused on those who are outside the congregation. They have forgotten that congregations primarily exist for people who are not church members and are not Christians.
