Being on Mission

By what standard am I measuring myself? Am I doing life well? How do you know?

A life lived on mission…

…participates in the fulfillment of God’s purposes in Christ (Acts 26:15-16)

  • Creation – we are accountable to God (Romans 3:23)
  • Character – God desires for none to perish (2 Peter 3:9)
  • Covenant – we are to be a blessing to others (Genesis 22:18)
  • Christ – we are to exalt him (Philippians 2:10-11)
  • Church – we are to be a holy people (1 Peter 2:9, 2 Corinthians 5:19)

…interprets every opportunity as a part of the whole mission (Acts 26:18)

  • Seek opportunities to put in a good word for Jesus
  • Involve Jesus in regular life activities rather than expecting the church to provide programs for me to be on mission with Christ

…emphasizes personal contact and influence (Acts 26:18) – Acts 1:8 is a summary of the rest of the book of Acts…

  • Jerusalem (1-7)
  • Judea (8)
  • Samaria (9)
  • The ends of the earth (11-28)
