CFC SFL Abu Dhabi, UAE
Before my yearly vacation to the Philippines from working abroad, I already decided that this year I will spend my time and really give myself in doing missions, specifically in the Visayas. With God’s grace, I was able to go on a mission trip in Bohol, Cebu and Iloilo.
As I have pronounced the verse above which was also mentioned in a talk in the Committed Servants Weekend (CSW) this year, I realized that participating in God’s mission; giving talks, sharing your personal Jesus encounter, giving workshops or even in the simplest and humbling task of arranging chairs for an event gives me bounteous joy and fulfillment to share God’s word to others. It gives us a reason to really live this life to the full and share our lives to those who do not know Christ yet.
Sometimes we sacrifice many ‘bread’ in doing mission but what I learned is this, “No money can ever pay the happiness that we experience in doing mission.” As we volunteer to go to places and serve the Lord, God will allow us to experience extreme happiness, for we have been given the chance to share the word of God, as to which man shall live!”
Preaching? No, but “A Calling” to each and everyone of us. Let us all participate in God’s mission TODAY!
