Seeing the Possibilities for Life On Mission
Life on mission emerges for the believer when we are able to see the possibilities of our relationship with God & our position in the world. Three beliefs that help me see the possibilities:
- God is all powerful – “with God all things are possible” Matthew 19:26
- God has placed me in this world for a purpose with the promise of His power & presence – “we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
- I will meet people today in great need – “Jesus saw the crowds & had compassion on them.” Matthew 9:36
When these three collide, the possibilities for making a difference should be constant in our hearts & minds. Just add obedience.
- Do I believe that God is all powerful?
- Do I believe that god has placed me in this world on purpose?
- Who do I know that needs encouragement, witness, acts of kindness, rebuke, etc.?
