Mature people understand intuitively that in this life there are some things worth fighting for; worth sacrificing for. Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah, the question is after being born again have you began walking with God? Are you walking with God? Do you have an experience with God? Mature people show up to change the society and immature people live to show off. Characteristics of mature people:
1. Noticed [Job 1:6-8, John 1:35-42, Luke 5:1-5] . Mature people are noticed by heaven. Can heaven notice you?
2. Christ Centred [ 2 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 1:21; Hebrews 12:1-3]. Mature people live a Christ centred life. Mature people spend time beholding on Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ became the first priority.
3. Mission driven [ John 4:34; John 17:4,18]. Mature people are mission driven people.
Do you work for a living or work for the living? Mature people are productive spiritually.
Think about your legacy. What legacy are you going to leave? If your name is mentioned when you are not around, what are people going to say about you? Naomi had a good legacy. Her legacy can be explained as follows: (i) Strength of character (ii) Unshakable faith in God in the midst of dark times (iii) Commitment to empowering the next generation.

Communion with God is the loving fellowship with Him in Christ. It simply means that I begin to pursue God and look for Him; and go into a deep relationship because of Christ. His interest becomes my interest. It is also the inner desire to always keep in touch with God.
As God’s people living in His world, we are called to adjust our lifestyle to Christ’s standard so that we can be used in an accurate and exact way.
1. Connect with the heart and mind of God
a. Interest in God draws His attention. But interest must be given direction and depth.
2. Confront “the challenge of change.”
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Three categories of Christ-followers:
1. THE IGNORANT (EPHESIANS 4:14; JAMES 1:6-8)
Who are tossed back and forth, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching...
2. THE EGOCENTRIC (LUKE 12:16-21)
Who only care about themselves but are not rich toward God.
3. THE “MISSIONAL”
Who understand and embrace their position as God’s agents in the world.
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
An age-old question with far reaching impact:
- Elisha (2KINGS 2:9-15)
- Isaiah (ISAIAIH 6:8-9)
- Jesus Christ (JOHN 4:34-38; JOHN 17:4, 18; JOHN 20:19-23; ACTS 1:8; 2CORINTHIANS 5:14-21)
3. Accept the cultural shift
So that the world may hear the gospel, see it, and follow it.
2 KINGS 10:16; ACTS 9:36-41; ISAIAH 21:11-12; PHILIPPIANS 2:15

The Vision Talk is an attempt to galvanize our attention and effort on the things God wants to do for us, in us, with us and through us as a COMMUNITY as well as INDIVIDUALS. The role of the church is to become like the water wheel - Providing living water and passing it on to society. The will of God for all of us is Be More, Do More at a community and individual levell. As we be, so we do. The deeper you are the further you can reach.
When you seek the Lord, you find Him, when you find Him, you live, you move, you are because He lives. The knowledge of Yahweh is more than an accumulation of facts about God. It's rather a full acquaintance with the word of God, a knowledge translated into a system of living, and affecting one's daily conduct as well as transactions.
