Men: Vision 2020 – Run the Race

by Jeff Zac

 

Men, we are back!

Vision 2020: Run the Race, with speaker, Angus Buchan, from his home in South Africa, and worship leader, Robin Mark, from his home in Northern Island.

June 27, we will be livestreaming this special no-charge event for men, with a family time on Saturday evening.

Hosted by Mighty Men’s Conference Canada, the purpose of Vision 2020 …Run the Race, based on Hebrews 12:2, is to strengthen, and introduce men to God’s purpose for fathers and sons in the home.

If a mother comes to know the Lord, often about 20% of the time the family will follow, but if a father comes to the Lord, about 90% of the time the family will follow his lead.

We believe at MMC Canada that God has been working to prepare our hearts to emerge from this COVID lock-down to run with Him, for His Kingdom purposes at home, work, church, community and beyond. As the family goes, so goes the nation.

For some men, this will be their first introduction to Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and we are believing to see men and their families saved in His harvest. Matt 10:1-2

Canada Day was originally called Dominion Day, because our founding fathers chose Psalm 72:8 as one of their foundational verses for this nation …

 

‘He shall have dominion from sea to sea,

and from the river to the ends of the earth’ as one of the foundations verses that birthed Canada.

 

Another verse that many believe point to as part of Canada’s destiny, and God purpose for our nation, is Revelation 22:2, “… and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” I don’t know of any other country that has a leaf on their flag.

We as believers in Canada need to fulfill our missional call, in the family first, then in our churches, community and beyond to the nations.

We sing ’God Keep our land Glorious and Free” in our national anthem, ’O Canada’. God is not obligated to continue to bless us with freedom. Freedom helps provide the opportunity to follow and worship our redeemer and Lord, who died to set us free. (Gal 5:1) and to know His love and purposes for our lives and His salvation for ourselves and our children.

Jesus has run the race before us. If we keep focused on Him and obey, He will restore us, be in us by His Spirit, run beside us and lead us to complete the race He has set before us for His kingdom’s sake. Amen! [ Heb 12:1-2]

We have men signing up from across Canada, the USA, South Africa, Nepal and India and more. My prayer is that we will experience the spirit of grace and supplication, and men and women and families will begin to call on the name of the Lord like never before in our homes, churches and nation, (Zechariah 12:10).

We are believing for a great and awesome revelation of Jesus Christ, His sacrifice on the cross, His love and the power of His resurrection drawing many, many people to Himself, for His sake. (2 Chron 7:14).
