The Call

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage-with great patience and careful instruction. (2 Timothy 4:1-2)

The Challenge

For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. (2 Timothy 4:3-5)

The Sacrifice and Reward

For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. (2 Timothy 4:6-8)

We all have those moments… you know when someone says something to you or something happens and it stays with you forever. Perhaps we don’t appreciate its significance at the time but it stays with us. It seems to come back on occasion throughout our life with renewed passion and we recall the statement or incident with the same intensity that hit us in that first instance we encountered it – it seems to etch away at us, shaping a bit of who we are and how we think. One of these moments, has entrenched itself in my mind and I wish to share it with you…

I once had someone tell me of her missionary trip to China. Her Pastor on their flight back heard people being satisfied in the work they performed in China and he told them “don’t you dare take credit for what happened in China”. He repeated this loving and yet harsh rebuke several times. This account stays with me –  as she shared how he expanded by sharing how God can do anything He wishes (as easy as a snap of the fingers) and yet He uses us. We are simply leaky vessels. I am so grateful. I pray He continues to refill this leaky vessel with His Spirit – for me to have wisdom, passion, love, and a resolute focus to humbly serve His will and shine His light. It is this moment and understanding that serve as the motivation and perspective of My Mission.

Please pray for:

  • My family to accept Christ
