Living Intentionally for Jesus' Mission
"Jesus’ life mission and message to glorify God has not changed. Neither has our mission changed since it is directly tied to His. Living an intentional life means a life driven by His, through us, for the Kingdom of God."
Living intentionally for Jesus is becoming more like Him, every day. Accomplishing this is a daily and personal commitment to reading His Word, prayer, obedience, and carefully listening to the Holy Spirit. My desire and goal is a constant pursuit to be made like Christ, and that requires daily dying to self to where I become unconsciously Christ-like.
Living intentionally for Jesus is a daily calling I choose to obey. It is seeing those around me as He sees them and being His hands and feet wherever He calls me to. Loving people and loving them well is a command I continuously pursue, and making time for Jesus and His community is a priority.
Living intentionally for Jesus is giving all in obedience to Him. When I am in His Word, reflecting and practicing gratitude for all God has done in my life, I feel His presence in my heart, and I start to see others as He does. My desire and hope is to be more like Christ each and every day and to plant seeds in others so they can know the mission and love of King Jesus.
For me, living intentionally ultimately means to be a disciple for Jesus. I put discipleship into action by learning God's Word and sharing it with others. My goal is to lead others to spiritual growth and towards their salvation. I do this by reflecting on Scripture and applying it to my daily practice.
When I am at my best and living intentionally, my life is focused on the needs of my fellow man first and foremost. I wake up with a willingness to let Holy Spirit guide me into the path of someone who has a specific need He would like me to fill, and I go to work on my unique assignment.
Then Jesus said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field."
