A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history. – Mahatma Gandhi
What is your mission? What has God called you to do on his behalf during your life?
Because whatever it is, if you have faith in your mission, you can change the world.
When I think about all of the missions I’ve set for myself in life, I realize it’s the Jesus mission that gives me determination and unquenchable faith.
I’ll spare you the details but I’ve set missions for myself to be everything from a poet to a millionaire. (Yes, a poet!) To be honest, I was never passionate about any of the missions I gave myself.
Since becoming a Christ-follower, that’s all changed.
I know my mission: It’s to help people start new things for the Kingdom. This mission has provided me clarity and focus as never before. My mission is part of something larger that God is doing in the world. I am one of a growing number of determined people with an unquenchable faith to catalyze new churches throughout the world.
That’s the other benefit to having an unquenchable faith in your mission: You might just change the world!
I mean who doesn’t want their life to matter? Who doesn’t want their life to count? Because I have a mission I wake up every day truly believing that I am making the world a better place.
Having a mission that you’re passionate will help you live a fulfilling life!
Whatever your mission, are you determined to see it out? Do you have faith in the mission?
One thing about your mission: You can’t give it to yourself. Someone has to give it to you. Soldiers don’t create their own mission. Generals give it to them. James Bond didn’t create his own missions; His Majesty’s government did.
You’re no exception.
In my opinion, the only one who can give you a mission worth giving your life to is God. The mission he has for your life is the one that’s going to sustain you. His is the only mission that is going to inspire deep in our hearts.
If you can’t articulate your mission, then may I urge you to spend some time hearing from God so you can know it.
I am inspired by the first 12 followers of Jesus. These were common folk who weren’t expecting to live determined and faithful lives. Then Jesus came along and gave them a mission and changed everything.
Gandhi is right. Determination and faith will change the world.
