IMAGINE: A Caring God (God Always Provides)
A God Who Provides A Mission
Can you imagine being placed in a situation such as Abraham? To leave all that you have ever known and to go to a place you know absolutely nothing about! Another way God could have communicated to Abraham is: TRUST in me, TRUST in my mission for you, and I will bless you amazingly.
Are you on a mission so valuable, so compelling, so urgent, that is worth giving up all you have…even your comfort zone?
Have you discovered your mission in life?
Are you willing to step back from your own situation long enough to really focus in on who you are, to discover your purpose in life?
Jesus certainly left his comfort zone in order to meet our needs for salvation! IMAGINE…being God’s only son, living in Heaven will all the splendor and glory deserved him, leaving his Heavenly body to descend to earth and live in human for with dust, dirt, temptation, sinful people and thing all around. IMAGINE…being born to a virgin, ridiculed, persecuted, shouted at, scoffed at, spit upon, falsely accused, eaten tortured, crucified. Surely there was a mission involved…and there was. Jesus said, “I have come the they may have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)
I am so glad to be part of Southport Heights Christian Church because she has a mission! Are you familiar with the entire mission statement? You should be very familiar with the shortened version…Love God, Love People, Make Disciples…but the whole statement is: Southport Heights Christian Church honors God by loving Jesus, loving others, and inviting all into the adventure of serving Him”
How do you fit into this mission? Are you a part of it? Are you willing to “are you willing to leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you” as Abraham did?
IMAGINE…a church whose mission is clear, whose members mature, ministry and multiply in order to magnify God’s name.
I IMAGINE my response to God today will be…
