Ask, knock, seek and receive

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8

Our personal relationship with Jesus requires us to be his hands, feet and eyes. Part of the challenge of being a disciple of Jesus Christ is to possess what I call "Mission Ambition."

When you have mission ambition realize there is a biblical step by step approach for each mission project selected.

You begin this process by asking God for guidance and help. Next you seek a group of interested people to help spread the word about what you are doing.

Last of all Mission Ambition is about knocking on doors and asking more people to help.

This is part of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.

Seek Out and Save the Lost

In John 17-18 Jesus asked God to sanctify us so we would be prepared to go out into the world, like the apostles. Sanctify means to be set apart and equipped for a special mission. That mission is to seek out and save the lost. Pray your church remembers to seek out and save the lost. Pray your church does not forget its mission, which God has given to them. Amen.

What Do You See in the Face of Jesus?

The Lord has anointed me, he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners.
Isaiah 61:1

This verse touches the spiritual dimension of all social concerns. The hunger of the poor, torture of people, the threat of war and all other immense human suffering. Yet in all this agony, we need to see the face of Jesus working to teach us the love of God, a love that reconciles, heals and unites. Help be the face of Jesus in your church, through its mission work.
