On Mission: Shift From 'Me-First' To 'God-First'

Jesus said to his followers, 'Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone.' Mark 16:15 (NCV)

"'God-first' believers know they've been saved to serve and made for mission."

People with "me-first" faith ask, "How can God make my life more comfortable?" They want to use God for their purposes instead of being used for his purposes.

'God-first' believers know they've been saved to serve and made for mission. They're eager to receive a personal assignment and excited about the privilege of being used by God.

Their joy, confidence, and enthusiasm are contagious because they know they're making a difference. They wake up each morning expecting God to work through them in fresh ways.

Which type of believer do you want to be?

God invites you to participate in the greatest, largest, most diverse, and most significant cause in history - building his Kingdom. History is his story; he's building his family for eternity. Nothing matters more and nothing will last as long.

From the book of Revelation we know God's global mission will be accomplished, that someday the Great Commission will be the Great Completion.  In heaven, an enormous crowd of people "from every race, tribe, nation, and language" will one day stand before Jesus Christ to worship him. (Revelation 7:9, CEV)

Becoming a 'God-first' believer will allow you to experience in advance a little of what heaven will be like.
