Summary: Jesus knew His Divine Mission. We must needs know our Divine Mission or we will be limited my human boundary lines.
KNOW YOUR DIVINE MISSION?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
There is another part, Know the Satanic mission?
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together to them that love God, to them who are the called ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.
11 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as HE PURPOSETH IN HIS HEART, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
1. DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR PURPOSE AND MISSIONS ARE?
Why are you alive? Why does God give His people another day?
As a whole do you think the average Christian knows what their mission is?
Is the church preparing saints to accomplish their mission?
If we do not know our mission, how can we ever accomplish our mission?
If we don’t realize we have a mission will we ever really be prepared to launch out and do our work?
If parents don’t know their mission, how can they ever successfully teach their children their mission?
2. DEFINE PURPOSE AND MISSION?
A. DEFINE PURPOSE: something set up for an end, goal to attain, determination, by intent, to propose as an aim,
A man that is tenacious in purpose is not easily shaken.
The devil can cite scripture for his purpose.
What is the final end of your purpose?
B. Define mission:
--- To be sent --- to entrust --- the act of sending --- a calling --- ministry commissioned to propagate faith --- assignment --- directional and financial support ---
C. There are two basic mission directions:
1. TO GO
Spell God ---GO-d
Spell gospel --- GO-spel
2. TO SEND
If we can’t go and touch every place, then we have
a duty to help send others that can.
3. GOD LOVES A GIVER THAT GIVES ON PURPOSE!
Today much of charity is NEED BASED.
You advertise the need and people will give.
GOD’S GIVING PLAN IS A PURPOSETH HEART, LOVE GIVING, PLANNED GIVING, REGULAR-FAITHFUL
11 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as HE PURPOSETH IN HIS HEART, so let him give; not
grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
4. SOMEONE MUST SEE THE NEED BEFORE REAL MINISTRY CAN OCCUR!
There was a great need, there were two widows that were just barely making it.
Their kinsman redeemer paid no interest in the struggling widows. There was no social security
system, there was no insurance policies.
Ruth 2:2 And Ruth said unto Naomi, LET ME GO to the field, and glean corn, I SHALL FIND GRACE!
Ruth and Naomi seemed to be trapped in despair, but God had a MAN WITH A PURPOSE!
BOAZ SAW THE NEED, BOAZ KNEW THE BEAUTY OF GIVING ON PURPOSE.
The beauty of this story is found in a man named Boaz;
Ruth 2:16 And let fall also some of THE HANDFULS OF PURPOSE FOR HER!
5. JESUS KNEW HIS PURPOSE AND HIS MISSION AND WAS A GIVER!
JESUS WAS A PURPOSEFUL GIVER.
Matthew 20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give
his life a ransom for many.
Today so many want to know what the church is going to do for them.
I agree that we should not use people to build the church, but that we should use the church to
build people. But there must be love enough to release a giving heart.
Jesus came to give.
6. JESUS’ PURPOSE AND MISSION WAS TO ALWAYS REACH BEYOND HUMAN LIMITATIONS!
John 6:27 Labor not for the meat which perishes, but that meat which endures unto everlasting life,
which the Son of man shall GIVE unto you: for Him hath the Father sealed.
33. For the bread of God is He which comes down from heaven, and GIVETH life unto the world.
34. Then said they unto Him, Lord, ever more give us this bread.
7. HAVE YOU EVER LOST YOUR MISSION? HAVE YOU EVER LOST JESUS?
IS IT HARD TO LOSE YOUR MISSION AND THUS THE SON OF GOD?
Mary lost Jesus? Ponder how Mary lost Jesus?
Mary was busy doing religious duties? Joseph was busy? Three days without Jesus, could this be possible?
Mary had a mission! Joseph had a mission and they lost Jesus!
They had both assumed Jesus was with the other.
After a long scary search they found Jesus, Jesus was not lost, he knew what his business was.
Luke 2: 49 And Jesus said unto them, How is it that you sought me?
WIST YOU NOT THAT I MUST BE ABOUT MY FATHER’S BUSINESS?
Are you actively pursuing God’s mission for your life?
Are you an alcoholic? Of course not? Are you a drug addict? Of course not?
Are you a television-aholic? Be honest? More time in front of the TV than the Bible?
