Sermon text: 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 Every follower of Jesus Christ has a mission. Certainly we have the overall mission given to the church, to make disciples. We have a mission as a part of a local church. But we also have a personal, individual mission. This mission will definitely line up with the larger missions of Christianity and our local body of believers. But no one else will have a mission just like you do. Do you know your mission?
Time is short. Jesus could return tomorrow. If not, we’re still not guaranteed tomorrow. But what if you live another fifty years? Time is still short from an eternal standpoint. We need to be tuned into God’s priorities. We need to align our prayers with His kingdom. And then we need to pour our lives into others.
Sometimes we just get too caught up in the day to day activities of life. But God will use whatever He deems necessary to get our attention. In the case of Peter, James, and John, Jesus took them on the mountain to see Him transfigured. He wanted to see that they couldn’t just see Him as their teacher. He was much more than that.
