But my life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus-the work of telling others the Good News about God’s wonderful kindness and love”-Acts 20:24
God gave you a mission, and it’s a mission only you can accomplish. Nothing matters more than this mission.
The more important work in our lives is not to get married, fund our retirement, travel, or have lots of fun. All of that is fine and dandy but the most important thing you can ever do is to fulfill God’s mission for your life. If you don’t, the Bible states your life is a waste. Jesus died on the cross to bring grace to you and me to give us a mission. We all have a mission!!! Part of our mission is to tell other people about the Good News, which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You came to faith in Christ because someone told you about Jesus. Now, who are you going to tell?
Jesus died for every single person including you and me. Most people live their lives as if they’re totally unaware that Jesus died for them. If those people live and die without ever knowing what Jesus did for them, then His death was a waste in reference to that person. Because God cares about every single person on the planet, we must too. Because God showed grace and mercy to us when He saved us, we must tell other people about the amazing grace of God. We must tell them that they can have a relationship with God and eternal home in Heaven.
If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, God has given you a mission in this world. You’re not here to just take up space; you’re not here to just strive after your own personal goals. You have an assignment from God himself. Once you’re in the family, your life changes. You have a new reason for living. Your life isn’t about you anymore; it’s about God’s mission. And your mission fits into God’s mission for all of history. God created everything in the universe because He wanted a family. He didn’t need Earth. He didn’t need the other planets. He didn’t need the stars. He created all of it because He knew some of us would willingly choose to be a part of His family.
The mission God gave Jesus He now gives to the Body of Christ — the Church. He wants us to help get other people into His family. Jesus said it like this: “As you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world” (John 17:18). Once we know Jesus, we have to go! We must tell our friends and families about Him. But we can’t stop there. God has never made anyone He doesn’t want saved. He loves everyone — across the entire globe. God wants us to live out His mission everywhere: in our families, our communities, and our world.
His mission for your life is both global and local. The Bible says, “Now the Lord says to me, ‘It isn’t enough for you to be merely my servant. You must do more than lead back survivors from the tribes of Israel. I have placed you here as a light for other nations; you must take my saving power to everyone on earth’” (Isaiah 49:6). That’s God’s plan for the world. That’s His mission for you and for me. He wants everyone on Earth to know Him. And He wants to use you to see that happen. God didn’t just say that to pastors. If you’re in His family, He gave His mission to you!
It’s Our mission!!!!

What keeps you from sharing the Gospel with others?
Telling others about God’s grace isn’t the only mission of your life. What do you believe is the rest of your mission?
