Commit to the Mission


“So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.”   - 1 Corinthians 15:58


We believe God has called us to a specific mission. We feel it in our bones, we’ve prayed and discussed it with people we trust and confirmed it through Scripture. We’ve spent time pouring over His Word, strengthening our faith and surrounding ourselves with spiritual teammates who are willing to journey with us. We’ve waited and watched, stepped out in faith and sacrificed the good for God’s great. Now, we hit the ground running. We commit to the mission and go with confidence on the road set before us.

When it gets hard—and it will get hard—let’s plant our feet and hold fast to God’s promises and the training we’ve received.

Here are three certainties we can commit to:

God Is Able

When we wonder if we’re worthy of our mission and whether we can keep up the pace, remember that in Christ, we are already valued as co-heirs and the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us. God is able to do abundantly more than we could think or imagine, and He’s able to not only keep us on our mission but make a way for greater impact than if we relied on our own efforts. Let’s put our full weight on God and His ability to accomplish incredible things when we are willing to surrender to His ways and leading.

God Is Greater

We’ll slip and stumble, grow weary and discouraged. But God is greater than any challenge or snag we face and has the power to work in us through His Spirit, especially when we feel inadequate. We can lean on His Spirit in us to open our eyes to see what we couldn’t before, and to stand on His Word to combat lies and deception. He who called us to the mission will be faithful to see us through. Our captain is Jesus Christ, and His leadership gives us the confidence we need to not only stand our ground but take ground for the Kingdom.

God Is for Us

Always, it comes back to God’s character and goodness. As His sons and daughters, He loves us with an everlasting love and has the good of His children in mind. He is our protector, deliverer, shield and strength. In Him we find refuge and live confidently that He is making a way for His message to the world and wants to partner with us through what He’s gifted in us. If God is with us, who can be against us? Keep this mindset while embarking on the path He’s called you to.

The clock is ticking. We’ve got work to do, and an intense battle is raging around us. What will we do with the time we’ve been given? How will we live out the mission God has assigned to us?

When He says move, move. When He says stay, stay. When He says wait, wait. Whatever the mission God gives you, fix your eyes on Jesus and get after it. Commit to what He has given you to do and believe God goes before you.

It’s game time.

  • Which do you have a more difficult time believing: God is able, God is greater, or God is for us? Why?
  • What can you do to combat the lie of disbelief with the truth of who God is?
  • Commit to what God has placed before you and be faithfully obedient.

Ephesians 3:20-21; Psalm 145:3; Romans 8:31


“Father, thank You that You are able to overcome any circumstance in my life, that You are greater than any situation I face and that You are always for us. Thank You for Your faithfulness. Help me when I am tempted to doubt Your character or think my situation is impossible. ALL things are possible with You. Help me commit to the mission You have given me and do it obediently, for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
