Life on Mission
God will stop at nothing to pursue your heart and mine. He longs for a deep and meaningful relationship with us! So many times in our world we hear that message but we miss out on the invitation to join in that deeper life. You were designed to live in relationship with Jesus and to pass along the joy of His love to others.
2 Corinthians 5:16-21 tell us:
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Because of Jesus… we are given a mission. We are called to “Life on Mission” with Jesus. “He has committed us to this message.” So what does Life on Mission look like? We want to take a look at the inward recognition of our identity as “new creations,” and the outward expression we are called to as a community and members of one body!
