I proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles. (Galatians 1:16, NLT)
Apostle Paul’s mission statement was clear: “I proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles” (Galatians 1:16).
In just ten words, Paul summarized the call on his life. How did he come up with that one?
After his conversion, Paul disappeared into the Arabian desert for three years. No, he wasn’t attending a writing seminar.
Instead, he spent time with Jesus.
Paul came away with a powerful mandate. And look what happened as a result of his ministry: churches were planted. Lives were changed. Leaders were raised up to keep spreading the Good News.
A clear, direct mission statement allows you to pursue ministry with purpose.
One reason Paul had clarity because he took time to ask God for it. Have you?
Ask God for clarity as you write your mission statement.
You have called each of us to a special mission. Let me take time to seek your direction and give me ears to hear you. Let me record my mission with clarity and carry it out with purpose.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
