We all have a mission in life, just like Jesus had at the age of 12. Jesus said, “I must be about my Father’s business,” and twenty-one years later, dying on the cross, he said, “it is finished.“
Like bookends, these two statements frame a well-lived, purpose driven life. Jesus completed the mission the Father gave him.
The mission Jesus had while on earth is now OUR mission because we are the Body of Christ.
This great commission was given to every follower of Jesus. All you have to do is abandon your agenda and accept God’s agenda for your life.
Say, “Father I want your will, not mine.”
~Pastor Rick Warren – Purpose Driven Life
