Daily Disciplines for the Christian Life: Get Your Mission

Get Your Mission

Exodus 19:1-6; Acts 1:4-8

Vicktor Frankl, Auschwitz survivor, wrote “Man’s Search For Meaning” – he learned that identifying a purpose in life to feel positive about, and then immersively imagining that outcome, gave hope to the hopeless, even in concentration camps. Frankl discovered that the very last thing anyone can take from you is your freedom of choice. YOU CHOOSE how you will respond to suffering, to enjoyment, to living and dying. Want to find your purpose? Get Your Mission!

To Choose Your Role In Life:

* TREASURE Your Position ~ Exodus 19:1-6

(don’t seek it, BE it)

  • 1/3 God’s people are given a message: specifics are for Israel, principles are for US
  • 4/5 set your priorities; IF keep covenant, THEN treasured “favorite tool-impact wrench”
  • 6 result of proper priorities: holy service

* PLAY Your Position ~ Acts 1:4-8

(what is your position on God’s team?)

  • 4 discovering your gifts
  • 5 Holy Spirit IS the gift; HS is ALSO the giver of gifts (Rom 12:1-8; 1 Cor 12-14; Eph. 4:7-16; 1Pet 4:10-11)
  • 6 identifying your passion; what are we looking towards?
  • 7/8 discerning your call; WHO will you seek? WHAT will you say? WHY would you share? WHERE are you going?

WHEN? Time is NOW: Position → Fruition → Passion → Commission
