God's Global Mission

"Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalms 46:10

It is God's ultimate goal to be glorified among all the nations of the earth, and He plans to realize that goal. His global mission is to see people of all nations worship Him around the throne (Revelations 5:9-10), but, as the Psalmist alludes, God does not need Jesus followers to accomplish that mission. Nevertheless, God graciously invites believers to participate in seeing that reality come to fruition. A Jesus follower has the amazing blessing of simply being able to rest in the sovereignty of God, watch for His activity, and share in the mission as He leads.

How often are you thinking of God's global activity? What are some ways in which He is leading you to share in His global mission?

Gifts From God

"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God." 1 Peter 4:10

Sometimes we can struggle with feeling worthless, but nothing is further from the truth. Do you know that you have a gift that helps others live out the life of Christ? You have a special gift from the Holy Spirit to serve others, and to help them experience the power and presence of God. God gives us the ability, in fact, to minister to His children through one another, and, through the Holy Spirit, this ability is truly limitless. How have you been blessed by the service of another Christ-follower? It may have been a check you received that covered your house payment, a note of encouragement, or maybe a prayer for healing. These gifts are from God Himself through members of the body. God is pouring out His grace to you and through you as you use your gifts.

What do you believe God has given you to meet the needs of others? Pray that God brings somebody to you this week that needs to receive your gift.
