TJC 20/20 Vision
The proverbial frog in a kettle describes many of us, and our communities; as our values, morals and culture have changed, we have not realized the threat, (and the promises). A great number of Christians have lives that are no different from non-believers; they fail to sense the danger we are in. Even worse we fail to embrace our Father’s love.
The Joshua Commission calls men to wake up and live transformed lives – full of power and love in the image of Jesus Christ.
2020 is a year of VISION and clarity, and TJC is committed to discipling Kingdom Men. We have an anchor verse in Ephesians 1:18 “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.”
In 2020 we are waking up Kingdom Men to get out of the cultural stew boiling around us. Kingdom Men are called to be set apart. We see beyond today, with eyes of the heart. Kingdom Men are powerful.
The TJC mission statement describes our agenda for 2020: “The Kingdom is at war. You were created for Victory. The Joshua Commission disciples Kingdom Men”.
You are called to be part of and to share in The Joshua Commission, in a new way in 2020.
We live in an amazing world and a blessed nation; but like that frog, we have lost site of what is healthy and Godly across our lives and our culture. Kingdom Men are called to plant seeds of Love and Jesus Christ in our homes, jobs, and areas of influence. Satan has and will always be planting seeds of deceit, deception, temptations; these seeds, these sins; are over growing the healthy gardens we plant, nurture and tend.
-In 2020 the bulk of TJC devotionals that we share each morning, will be focused at clarifying Godly seeds (truth), and weeding out ungodly seeds and sins. Kingdom Men need to be able to discern and share the health, wholeness, and the beauty of God’s eternal truths.
-We will hit some tough, overgrown patches of weeds in 2020; which demands that we sharpen blades for “as Iron sharpens Iron, one person sharpens another” Proverbs 27:17. The Joshua Commission will provide multiple training opportunities for Kingdom Men to sharpen their swords and armor, as we will travel to Chattanooga, Selma, Fredericksburg and Gettysburg in 2020 in-order-to provide hands on training.
-The Joshua Commission is partnering with several like minded visionary organizations to include 1) Every Man a Warrior, 2) Together 2020,and 3) Shepherds Gate; in-order-to expand our Kingdom outreach and training.
-The Joshua Commission is using our community skills and talents to come alongside new pastors and churches to help them build strong men’s ministries and launch Kingdom changing communities.
Do not ignore the calling on your life as a Kingdom Man in 2020. You are not a frog unaware of the changing environment. You need to be awake. You need to be preparing “the way” in every area that you influence.
Please pray for all of us as Kingdom Men as we journey into this new decade and this year of Vision. “Dear Father, you have created us for such a time like this. We want to see the world, with wide eyed child like faith, and see the beauty you created. We know you are a good, good Father, and the best news ever is Jesus Christ. Open our eyes, open our hearts, close the gap between our hearts and minds. Let us be awake and discern the ways of our enemy. Let us respond with powerful love, and share your Kingdom. In the name of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, thank you Father” Amen.
