He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”Mark 16:15 NIV
Do you know your purpose?
You’re alive on this planet, during this time in history, for a reason. Your life is not a mistake or a surprise to God.
He has fashioned you, chosen you, called you, anointed you, and appointed you.
Just let this truth sink in for a moment.
I’m not making this stuff up! It’s all in the Bible.
As I was reading this new book called Wildfires, this quote popped out at me:
God’s plan is for you to believe in his Son to find forgiveness of sins, newness of life, and a place in his eternal kingdom. He then sends you into the world to share this Good News with others.
Today’s verse contains what’s called the Great Commission. It’s the purpose of the Church, Christ’s body, his ambassadors on earth: to preach the gospel.
It’s not just the job of pastors and the “super spiritual.” No no no.
As a follower of Jesus, the Great Commission applies to you. You’re supernaturally empowered to share Jesus with the people in your life. That’s your purpose. You’re made for this!
Over the next several days (even weeks), mediate on Mark 16:15-20 and Matthew 28:16-20. Ask the Lord to make these verses come alive.
We’re living in an urgent and exciting time. Every person has a part to play. God has chosen you. He promises to provide everything you need to accomplish what he’s called you to do.
Do you want to go deeper in your faith and get equipped to share the gospel?
I can’t wait to share more details soon!
