I have asked the question "What is your mission" to numerous people throughout the day and had little or no response. Of course there is no right or wrong answer here but I was trying to determine if anyone had thought about the question. I believe it is one of the most important questions a person can answer about what drives him or her.
Sadly, not too many people have ever answered the question in their lives. I think that is the problem with a lot of people who decide on a church to join and then quickly fall away. There is no mission to drive them in their Spiritual lives. People look for a church that offers something to satisfy them. They don't look for a place to serve or a place where they can fulfill their mission. The result is an unfulfilling connection that doesn't last.
We have to find our place of belonging and service. This place must be a place that challenges us and provides for us the avenue to fulfill the plan God has laid out for us. This cannot be any organization that allows us to hang our hat, but rather a place that is a match for our mission. We have to know our core desire and the elements that drive us. We have to know the boundaries of Scripture and God's will. It is only then we will be satisfied in knowing we are where we should be and we doing what we must do.
What is your mission? I hope you are not a drifter just looking to be accepted.
