"THE STRUCTURE OF THE VISION"
Introduction: If you believe the Bible say AMEN! Since it
is the Word of God we must not only intellectually comprehend,
or emotionally love it, but willfully obey it.
We learned last week that we need a vision of the grace of God,
the lostness of people, and a vision of what God wants to do
through us. Since share the vision is so biblical we must fol-
