“The thief does not come except to kill, and to destroy, I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
During World War II if an unidentified soldier appeared suddenly in the dark and could not state his mission, he was automatically shot without question.
All the soldiers knew their mission and they all had the same mission statement.
What would you say if Jesus asked you, what is your mission?
Jesus’ mission statement was in this Scripture. He came that we can have life and have life abundantly.
Jesus was focused on His mission. He kept God’s will and mission for His life always in view, and refused to let the pull of the attractions of the world distract Him from His mission.
When he said, “It is finished,” He was acknowledging that His mission had been fulfilled. He had focused on His mission and not wavered until it was complete.
Are you focused and locked on your mission and destiny?
• To focus on your destiny means you don’t even see what is between you and your destiny. Paul tells us that He counts everything rubbish except that which is the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
What is your destiny and mission in life?
• We all have one.
• We need to get our destiny clearly in focus and let nothing distract us.
•We need to be able to state our mission statement in one or two sentences.
“But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”(Matthew 24:13)
