Do you have goals for your life? For this year, the next 5 years or the next 10 years?

Are your goals for your personal and/or your professional life?

What about your spiritual life?

Just like your personal and professional life, we should not take our spiritual development for granted…we must have a mission for ourselves, God’s mission.

If you don’t know what God’s mission for you is, talk to Him about it, and listen to where He wants you to be, where He wants you to be His missionary. Don’t think just because God’s sent you in one direction that’s where He wants you to be forever, so keep talking to God and following His directions for your life.

Let God direct you to your goals, your life mission for Him.

The Mission by The Newsboys

When the runners came from Bethlehem
All breathless with good news
They were passing a baton forward through time
The commission, from God’s lips to our ears
Carried by His saints two thousand years
Connects us all to the same lifeline
As I fix my eyes ahead
I can feel the Spirit’s breath…

(And) I can hear the mission bell ringing out loud and clear
It’s the revolution Jesus started, and it’s here
Echoing across the world from the shores of Galilee
I can hear the mission bell call for you and me
I wanna run with fire
It’s my heart’s desire
Lifting your love higher

In the history of our faith’s arrivals
Great awakenings, Welsh revivals
Saints and martyrs, summoned by a new birth
Patrick’s save of the Irish nation
William Carey’s expectation
Lambs and Lions
Called to the ends of the earth
Gotta put my hand to the plow
Not looking back, not now…

(And) I can hear the mission bell ringing out loud and clear
It’s the revolution Jesus started, and it’s here
Echoing across the world from the shores of Galilee
I can hear the mission bell call for you and me
I wanna run with fire
It’s my heart’s desire
Lifting your love higher
