“Next” January 24
Day 18 “What’s Your “NEXT” Mission”
Matthew 4:19; John 10:27; John 1:43; Matthew 16;24; John 12:26
What’s your mission; what’s your purpose in life, what are God’s plans for you, what’s your God given destiny?
There have been a number of books that have been immensely popular over the last decade in the Christian Book stores and online; many of these books topping the bestseller list for weeks. They have a common theme and it’s about what we need to do to improve ourselves or what we need to do to be better, and not about God.
When we are at the center of the mission, things go haywire. When we follow the directives given to us through the Bible, and from the Holy Spirit our mission, purpose and direction are completely clear.
Your “Next” mission is to FOLLOW ME . This directive is used throughout the New Testament in a variety of circumstances and towards many different individuals.
James and John in Matthew 4:19: ‘“Come follow me,” Jesus said. . . At once they left their nets and followed Him.
Matthew known as Levi the tax collector: Jesus saw a tax collector named Levi working. “Follow me,” Jesus said and he got up, left everything, and followed Jesus.
Follow Me is used as a command from Jesus, the recipients of this command didn’t hesitate, they dropped what they were doing and followed Him. Only in the culture where we live do we hesitate on whether we will truly follow Jesus. Jesus is calling you now for your “Next” mission: FOLLOW HIM.
