Refresh our direction by God’s Calling (Mission-focused)

      One impact the pandemic produced is a lack of motivation:

      “When being home is so cozy and safe, why venture out?”

      “I just don’t feel motivated. Maybe I’ll resume church life later when I feel better.”

     “Why reach out now, probably no one wants to connect anyway…”

       Let’s ask ourselves, “How is my soul?”  

       Whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.

 ( Luke 14:27)

       Have we been so focused on ourselves, our own comfort and security, that we have lost the purpose for which God has called us? 

       Once upon a time, a shoe company sent two salesmen to a poor country to determine the market potential for their products. One salesman was sent east, while the other salesman was sent west. Both salesmen completed a basic survey of the target market and called back to the office. The salesman sent to the east reported: “No one here wears any shoes, there is no market for us here!” The other salesman sent a message “No one here wears any shoes, there is a huge market for us, send inventory fast!”

       An entrepreneur looks for gaps in business, and sees an opportunity. 

       What would a Disciple be looking for in the post-pandemic world?

        In every circumstance, God gives us opportunities to be salt and light for the power of the Gospel (Matt. 5:13-14). Privately in our personal life, and publicly in society. 

        Part of our definition of being a disciple is “Mission-Focused”. 

        When we focus on ourselves and our own interest, we naturally gravitate toward comfort and security. But when we shift our eye sight onto the mission that God has entrusted to us, we become motivated. 

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is hidden.


        What you do today matters. How you use the opportunities and time given to you matters. 

        Let’s focus on what God has call you to do, and the opportunities He has placed in front of you. Your action, obedience, faithfulness today can have unimaginable impact.
