I shared this verse on Instagram the other day, but it came back up in my quiet time with the Lord today, so I thought I’d share it again here on the blog. It’s so easy to get caught up in our own little world (especially here in the land of the “free”) and forget what our mission and purpose really is, as followers of Christ. Or perhaps we don’t even really know to begin with. As Will has so beautifully said so many times, we have not been saved just to go to Heaven. We’ve been saved to build the Kingdom of God. Our mission is the Great Commission. This verse explains it so succinctly. We are to go, just as the disciples were instructed, just as Paul was commissioned by Jesus here…to everyone…to “open their eyes and turn them from darkness to Light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins (as we have), and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith in Christ (us).”
This is a beautiful gift…The mystery of the Gospel…everlasting life in Christ Jesus our Lord. We can’t keep it to ourselves. It’s like fire shut up in our bones if we don’t speak it, preach it, share it, live it!!! Just a quick reminder today as you go out and about your business…Let’s be about the FATHER’S business. Pray and seek Him first, ask Him what’s on HIS agenda for you…and be obedient to accomplish the good works He’s already prepared for you to walk in. It’s such an exciting adventure to walk hand in hand with the God of the universe and allow Him to live and move and flow through you!!!
Peace my friends and love you all.
