God sends you and I out into a world that needs Him and the benefits that come with following Christ.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Acts 13:2 - One day as these men were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Dedicate Barnabas and Saul for the special work to which I have called them." 3 So after more fasting and prayer, the men laid their hands on them and sent them on their way.
Read - Acts 13-14
Paul has been converted to Christ and is now a leader in the church that is being sent out on a journey to share Jesus with the world. This, his first missionary journey, was much longer and more arduous than the two chapters of scripture make it sound. Could God be calling you into a new journey for Him?
Lord, I will go when and where You say to go.
We are Mended by the cross of Christ and Morphed by His Holy Spirit…this occurs in us so that our Minds are transformed, our heart Motives are transformed and ultimately we are given a Ministry. This isn’t just for clergy but each of us are called to Minister in this definition: to Obediently Serve God with our lives out of the power given to us by His Holy Spirit. Paul, on his first journey, went many scary places and saw God deliver many amazing results. This only happened because he was willing to take on a ministry that he sensed he was called to…how might God be calling you?
