“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”
Matthew 11:12 NKJV
What a bold description! The first-century church had issues, just like the church does today, but they were full steam ahead. They had a clear picture of what they wanted—God’s reign—and they went after it.
Storms are bound to batter us now and then. Without a vision, We as God followers will waste our lives. But with a clear vision, we’re a force to be reckoned with.
Do you have a mission statement for your life?
How about core values?
Or what about life goals or a life plan?
We’re on a mission from God. A mission from God not only motivates us to do the right thing, but it also demotivates us from doing the wrong thing.
If you aren’t on a mission from God, you aren’t really living—you’re dying.
What is your purpose for the remaining years God will give you on this earth?
Today we focus on what's essential!
