I am sure you have heard talk about mission statements of companies, organization and churches. Do you ever wonder about what your mission in life is? Well, over the years, I know I wondered about my mission, especially through hard times and when things did not go as I expected. There have been times when I felt lost and did not know what my mission or purpose was.
In this crazy world, I am certain that I am not alone. There must be bunches of people hungering to find out what their mission in life is.
As Christians, we may want to refer to the Great Commission, Matthew 28:19,” Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
As a part of Trinity’s family, you may want to look at Trinity’s mission statement: “To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
As believers, we are on a mission from God. We all need to work together and we each are responsible for our part in that mission.
Because we are each uniquely made and differently gifted by God, we each have a different ways we may contribute. Our individual mission will line up with the gifts that God has given us and will overlap all parts of our life. We are all called to use our gifts to glorify God. The good news is you are probably already doing something in your life that is related to your God given gifts and individual mission.
If you are wondering about, searching for or hungering to find your mission, maybe you can take time during this Lenten season to grow closer to Jesus and reflect on some aspects His mission.
