Be On A Mission For God by Sonya

“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Mathew 28:19

God is calling my husband and I to go back to Africa. We were in South Africa ten years ago and part of our hearts are still there and have a passion for the work God is doing in Africa. So, we are going to Ghana and serving on the west side of Africa towards the north end now in the last two weeks of June. We are so excited to do God’s mission there and preparing our hearts for how God will work in us and through us. God is really working in my heart and showing me what being on a mission for God looks like. It starts with being a servant and having a humble heart to serve God wherever. Can’t wait to serve the people in Africa and see the world through their eyes and open my heart to see God in a new way. Our hearts have to be open to how God is nudging us and we don’t want to miss out on His calling for our lives.

Being on a mission for God could look like going to Africa or overseas but God can use you anywhere and in your family and workplaces and in your communities. He is on the move and ready to take us as long as we are obedient and in tune to His Spirit. Our eyes need to be open to the needs around us and hearts ready to move and be passionate for the things of God. God is really moving my heart for the people in Africa and I can’t wait to see what God is already doing there, to be moved and for my eyes to be opened to what He has in store. Also, I can’t wait to be the “light” for God and letting people see Jesus in a new way. “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works, and give glory to your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Letting your light shine in all places, you are showing people God’s glory and reflecting His love. Showing God’s love and spreading God’s word is being on a mission for God. Be that positive difference maker in the world. Don’t hold back and get out of your comfort zone and be that light today! “For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.” Acts 13:47
