You’ve read: Equipping For Life, on this site. That’s my mission. It’s God’s idea. His instruction to pastors is to equip believers for the work of the ministry, (Ephesians 4:2). That’s what I do. Your purposes, or life missions, could fall under several headings.
Jesus lived life with purpose. One of His purposes was to offer us abundant life (see John 10:10). An abundant life is lived on purpose – as a mission. And that’s where our life purposes meet this ministry website!
All believers have purposes that are life encompassing. The Greatest Commandments are the best examples, and those commands are given to every believer. There are posts and resources here to equip you regarding these two great purposes for our lives. Similarly, the Great Commission is given to all believers. You’ll find help here to equip you for this disciple-making mission.
There are purposes we may not share with other believers. Marriage is one example. I call it our marriage mission. Why? Marriage is God’s idea and He has a great deal to say about building a Godly marriage. Abundant life includes one’s marriage – but we must be equipped.
And what about those on the parenting mission? The Word of God equips us for that mission. If parenting is one of your purposes you will find help here.
I’ve equated mission and purpose together, you may have noticed. The believer’s life is a missional life. Abundant life is found in living for God’s purposes. This thought is rooted in I Corinthians 6:19-20. And we also see missional living in Philippians 1:21.
But the term missional living brings missionary to many minds. So I didn’t start with that term even though it applies to all – really! Some are vocational missionaries just like some are pastors. And the Word equips all. You’ll find insight, resources and help on this website to help you with your own missional living.
It’s our prayer that these Missional Living resources will be a blessing to you!
