Jeremy is a missionary that has a soccer ministry in Austria. When you speak to him, he cannot understand why others don’t see the importance of his vision to use this platform to introduce youth to Jesus.. He is passionate about the task the Lord has assigned him.
Visiting the Perspectives headquarters, you will find an entire company of people that are passionate about the spread of the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement curriculum. After all, it tells the story of how the Lord used his people to spread the gospel across the globe from the time of Christ until now. The material is prepared and presented by the brightest minds in missions in our time.
The Perspectives team is motivated by the consistent observation of watching the insights and the impact of the course change lives.
Similarly, we at MissionNext are passionate about those that start the journey to get connected with any sort of mission assignment. People begin to see how the Lord can use them regardless of the flashes of brokenness or brilliance of the past. They experience the thrill of realizing that it is possible “for even me” to make a significant impact.
In each situation, those working the assigned task are strenghthened by working in their arenas of strength. You say, “What about me?”
Don’t settle for activities that fail to energize you. Work in the strengths that the Lord has given to you, giving them back to Him. Find areas of service that you are passionate about. What is that?
If you were given 15-minutes to speak on national TV on any subject, what would your message be? As a useful exercise, prepare that speech. Share it with the Lord. Share it with someone.
Find out assignments short-term, long-term, home and abroad that might use your strengths. So that when you wake up in the morning you look forward to the day. To find that opportunity, register or login to the Journey at MissonNext.
