The Mission Starts With The Mission

The mission is the mission. If it is not the mission, then it is nothing more than a distraction. Your goal is to seek some clarity around your mission; in what exact way do you wish to watch over your world? What kind of future do you have in mind for us? Once you have an answer, please get started. You must avoid the trap of waiting for everything you think you need to get started. The most important thing is to take some form of action every single day. God has already supplied what you need to take the next step. You are never stranded. You just need to be willing to take a step.

The Message Bible has an excellent paraphrase of Matthew 10: 9-11, “Don’t think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign before you start. You don’t need a lot of equipment. You are the equipment, and all you need to keep that going is three meals a day. Travel light. When you enter a town or village, don’t insist on staying in a luxury inn. Get a modest place with some modest people, and be content there until you leave.” Focus on your mission. Every other thing will be supplied over time. Do not sit idly, waiting for resources. You are the equipment. You are the resource. Press into your spirit and keep going.

The mission starts with the mission. You don’t need a fund raiser. Here is some wisdom for you; with the resources available to you right now, what is the most productive action you can take? Do not be afraid to take a small step. Do not be too proud to start small. Luke 22:35 (ESV) says, “When I sent you out with no moneybag or knapsack or sandals, did you lack anything?” They said, “Nothing.” You might not have all the resources. You might not even have all the answers. But, if you have Jesus on your side, you are ready. The mission awaits.
