Developing a Personal Mission Statement
To help us live wisely with the Lord, we may want to develop a personal mission statement. As Christians, there is no requirement to have a mission statement, but it offers the potential to enhance our lives. A mission statement can help us focus our thoughts, energies, and resources, as well as give us a purpose for our lives. A mission statement can help provide a framework for thinking and help us achieve our goals.
Jesus gives us the basis for our mission statement. “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20). The Great Commission prompts and calls us to do the Lord’s work during our lifetimes. Our individual mission statements will identify our own unique individual gifts, abilities, and resources.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, give me the boldness and the passion to be about sharing the Good News with others. Guide me in developing a statement and a purpose in service to You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your Journey as a Steward!
