This verse fills me with joy. This verse also gives me hope. This verse challenges me, just because, there is so much I can take from this one verse!
What do you think of or imagine when you read this verse?
Travel? Journies? Adventure? Missions? Purpose? All of them, and more? Me too!
Jesus came to set everyone free, and for us to experience freedom, just as it was always intended, but most importantly, to have an intimate relationship with the Father.
Yet, so many of us are still stuck in the cocoon of our world.
I love to travel…anywhere and everywhere – highways and byways. I always made a deal with God (that sounds worse than it is!) that wherever He called me, I would go.
I want to experience as many cultures, journies, testimonies of God’s goodness, and to see the world through His eyes. To bring joy and light, into the darkness of this world.
Am I a missionary? Yes, and no. I am called to set people free (with Jesus) from strongholds, fears, and to walk in their purpose in life – wherever that takes me, God only knows, but I do know that He will open those doors for me to travel.
We have a natural tendency to pick out the good bits and disregard the rest (when reading Scripture), but time, and time again, Jesus reminds us:
Just as God sent Jesus into the world, Jesus has sent ”them” – that’s you and I, my friend, into the world as well.
This life is about experiencing God’s glory on a daily basis, and to prepare us for what is to come. Don’t live in fear of the unknown, when an adventure with God, awaits
It doesn’t matter if the part of the world you are supposed to travel too, is two blocks from where you are now, or around the world three or four times in your lifetime…
What matters, is our faithfulness and obedience to Christ, and that, the part of the world you were predestined to change, does change for Jesus
