36. Made for a Mission


Being a Christian includes being sent into the world as a representative of Jesus Christ. That  mission is  introducing people to God!

The importance of your mission
Your mission is a continuation of Jesus' mission on earth. Jesus said, "Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples.” This is not optional. God holds you responsible for the unbelievers who live around you. You are the only Christian some people will ever know, and your mission is to share Jesus with them.

Your mission is a wonderful privilege.
Your mission involves two great privileges:

1. Working with God.

  1. Representing God.

Telling others how they can have eternal life is the greatest thing you can do for them. We have the greatest news in the world, and sharing it is the greatest kindness you can show to anyone.

Your mission has eternal significance.
You should continually look for people God places in your path with whom you can share the gospel. It will impact the eternal destiny of other people, so it's more important than any achievement you will reach during your life on earth.

Your mission gives your life meaning.
There are people on this planet whom only you will be able to reach, because of where you live and what God has made you to be. If just one person will be in heaven because of you, your life will have made a difference for eternity.

What its costs to fulfil your mission.
To fulfill your mission will require that you abandon your agenda and accept God's agenda for your life. The moment you become serious about your mission, expect the Devil to throw all kinds of diversions at you. If you will commit to fulfilling your mission in life no matter what it costs, you will experience the blessing of God in ways that few people ever experience.

I intend for “One (more) person for Jesus” to be the theme of the rest of my life. Consider it as a focus for your life. Nothing matters more to God.


Question to Consider:
What fears have kept me from fulfilling the mission God made me to accomplish? What keeps me from telling others the Good News?


Verse to Remember:
Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20
