The Mission…

Most professions have a mission statement. Doctors have the Hippocratic Oath. Police officers are sworn to protect and serve. Each branch of the military have their own mission statement. Every position within the organizations has been created to serve the mission of the agency. Think about your job or career? It is in line to serve the mission of that organization, but does it serve YOUR mission?

No matter your profession, your lives have a purpose. We have been created for a mission. What is your mission statement? Is everything in your life crafted around your mission statement? The beauty of the body of Christ is that while our operations may vary, our mission is same: to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And why do we minister? It’s found here:

Each our ministries are beautiful and unique but all exist to elevate Christ and to submit to the Lord our God. Your blog can disciple. Your artwork can disciple. Your nonprofit can disciple. Your hobbies, your integrity, and the way you care for your family can disciple.

Everything in our lives must draw us and others to Christ. Your self-care gives you the energy you need to illuminate Christ. The food you eat serves as fuel so that you can continue to do the work of the Lord-so that you can make disciples. The clothes you wear can disciple as well.

The mission cannot be forsaken and we must be vigilant about the mission. We must evaluate and dispose of anything that does not represent the mission of Jesus Christ in our lives. We must ask the Lord to help stay true to our assignment in Him.

So, my friend, what’s your mission statement?

Peace and Blessings

Prayer Warriors Unite!

Operating together is so much more powerful than standing alone. Being connected with someone helps us watch each other backs. Operating together helps the job get done faster. And it is nice to know that you are not alone.

The Word shows us the power of praying together:

Prayer warriors, it is time to unite! This is the intended design of the Lord. Look at what happens what we unite in prayer:

“Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew‬ ‭18:18‬

If what we are seeing in the world, in our communities and in our homes are bothering us, call up your prayer partner and pray! We all like to vent or fuss, but with another believer, we are able to bind and loose! We are able to declare, decree, and rebuke! It’s time to bind those generational curses and loose blessings! It’s time to bind confusion and loose clarity! Unite prayer warriors!

“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” Matthew‬ ‭18:19‬

Agreement produces acceptance! When the Lord hears His children crying out in unison, He responds! It’s not about the millions, it’s about the two! Prayer warriors, imagine the prayers that will be answered if we pray with and for one another. The Lord is actively demonstrating the beauty of community.

Unity in prayer produces the presence of the Lord! We were created for relationship and two believers united in prayer will draw the Lord to them. Imagine the Creator of the Universe enjoying the sweet sounds of your prayers as we unite.

Let’s stand together, locked in arms, seeking the face of the Father for healing, peace, and love!

It’s time for us to unite, prayer warriors!

Preach!

What do you see when you think about a Preacher? Someone holier than thou? A man? Someone articulate? Maybe educated? Perhaps they are only a preacher if they are behind a pulpit or in a church?

And maybe the image we visualize isn’t completely off track. However, we must broaden our vision of a Preacher. We must expand our mind about who a preacher may be. Why, you say? Because YOU are a preacher!

Yep, you.

Let’s look to the Word:

This charge isn’t just for a man. There is a young woman who needs to hear a Word. This isn’t just for someone who is articulate, remember Moses? This isn’t for the educated, the Lord used children to minister, remember Jeremiah?

You, my friend, are a preacher. You don’t need to be a theologian to tell the Good News. You don’t need to be perfect, that’s only reserved for Jesus. You don’t need a crowd, there is someone who needs to hear YOU.

Do not be intimidated by those who may appear to be smarter or more charismatic. Don’t be concerned with those who appear to be perfect. Don’t be nervous about how you may sound. Do you love the Lord? Do you belong to Christ? Then you have all you need to give the Good News!

2 Timothy 4:2 gives it to us plainly, preach the Word, period! You preach with your lips and lifestyle. You preach with your kindness and joy. You preach with the love you show others. You preach when you tell about how the Lord has been good to you. You preach when you serve and serve well. Your preach with your testimony. You preach when you blog unto the Lord.

So preach, Preacher! The world needs to hear the Good News. Preach the Word, my friend!

Peace and Blessings

They that wait…

Food typically taste better when it is heated in the oven. The flavor is preserved. There aren’t those pesky hotspots. The food is crisp. The heat is evenly distributed. But it is the waiting. Ah, the waiting. Our microwave generation selves are not really great fans of waiting. Ah, but the fruit that is present in the waiting is priceless.

And waiting in the Lord? Nothing compares! You may be able to get it done quicker and faster, but the Lord is able to do it RIGHT! Not only does He do it better, there are a few benefits for they that wait on the Lord, scripture tells us so:

They that wait are renewed. They that wait will run and not get weary. They that wait will walk and not get faint. They that wait are able to see the beauty of the Lord. Their patience is strengthened. Their hearts are purified. Their focus is laser sharp.

Will we join those that wait? Will we separate ourselves from the microwave generation and join the slow cooker crowd? Will we wait for the hand of the Lord to show itself? Will we be the ones who trust in the heart of God when we can’t see His hand?

In this seasons of New Year goals and resolutions, wait on the Lord for that weight loss as you strive for a healthier lifestyle. Wait on the Lord as He restores your finances as you budget and save. Wait on the Lord to reveal Himself as you seek Him through intentional fasting and prayer. Don’t give up! Just wait…

They that wait are empowered, encouraged, and emboldened to run on!

Peace and Blessings
