Our God is a missionary God and He’s passionate about the lost, the least and the last. He sent His Son to redeem the world. After His resurrection, our Lord Jesus Christ sent us to go into the world and make disciples of all nations. We have a mission to accomplish. We have a job to do. We have a task to occupy us until He comes back. We are to reach people of all nations and turn them into fully devoted followers of Christ. Will you step out by faith and engage in mission for the glory of God?
Our God is relentlessly focused on making disciples so much that the first thing Jesus Christ did after He came from the temptation experience in the wilderness was to start recruiting men who were to be his disciples. It’s not so much that He needed them as such because He is divine and yet He chose them to be His disciples. He was modelling something for us to emulate in extending his kingdom here on earth. At the end of His earthly ministry, there is no mistaking what He placed emphasis on – “Go and make disciples of all nations…” Jesus is calling us to BE disciples. MAKE disciples. Whatever we do in ministry, let’s ‘reach people and turn them into fully devoted followers of Christ!
Our God is passionate about raising leaders that make a difference for His kingdom. The leadership that maters to God is one that sees service as the nature of leading God’s people. Real leadership that matters most to God is biblical, spiritual and transformational. God is looking for leaders that reach people with the good news and turn them into fully devoted followers of Christ! Such kind of leadership demands much more from us as both leaders and emerging leaders. It is a rare breed but nothing is impossible with God!
