Consider The Spiritual And Intellectual Perspectives Of Your Mission

You should approach your mission from two perspectives: spiritual and intellectual. It is important to be able to articulate your spiritual convictions regarding the actions you wish to take. Equally important is the need to explain your mission in plain English, rather than hiding behind vague and verbose religious-sounding jargons that hide your ignorance. “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.” Habakkuk 2:2 (ESV). The heavenly vision must be expressed in such a way that anyone who looks at it can understand what it is all about and see how they can contribute.

Noah understood that God would judge mankind during his lifetime, bringing disaster to the earth. He could explain why they needed to build an ark, and how they would build in simple English. If you read Genesis 6: 13-22, you will notice that Noah understood his mission so well that he knew exactly what he had to do at all times. The ark’s exact dimensions were known. The precise materials needed for the construction were known. The project was not ambiguous in any way. A six-year-old could understand it if you explained it to them. Anybody should be able to pick up on what you’ve written and run with it.

Matthew 6:10 says, “your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven”. Your divine ideas and spiritual mission must be expressed in words that people can comprehend and act upon. Your spiritual mission must have a clearly articulated physical goal. It’s fine if things aren’t entirely clear right now. Clarity improves with time. However, it is critical to recognise that you do not yet fully comprehend your mission. Using an app to write out your mission statement, such as the Hemingway app, will help you determine whether you understand your work well enough to explain it to a child.
