Welcome to Day Three! Please leave a reply if you find this helpful!
A little tip about doing devotionals–it’s always good to start with a prayer asking the Holy Spirit to come and direct your reading.
What is your ultimate purpose while you are here on this earth, awaiting the time you see Jesus face to face?
Our commission—the commission of every believer in the Lord Jesus–is to go and make disciples and they are to be baptized in the name of our triune God as an outward sign of their inward devotion–and to teach them to observe everything He has commanded us.
This command comes with a promise–first, He has been given all authority in heaven and earth and second He will be with you always.
He has given this command to all His followers, so the question is what is your part and where and to whom will He send you?
Doubts will come. Personally sometimes in my life I have doubted that He cares or takes notice of me. Mostly I doubt that I am worthy.
But I love Him because He first loved me and He has shown me again and again His mercy, grace, and light, often in the darkest and most rebellious times in my life.
So the purpose of our lives on this earth–the purpose of our life, our parenting, our homeschooling, our businesses, our homes, our everything–is to make disciples.
And in that, we are to be faithful in the areas in which we are called to teach.
Because He is faithful and He will return and then the ultimate purpose of heaven and earth will be fulfilled—
The marriage of His bride the church to the Lamb of God.
All praise and glory to Him!
Replace your self-doubt with faith through action steps. Be faithful with what He has given you to do.
Guide me in fulfilling your Great Commission. Lead my steps so that your message of redemption brings others to your Name and then may they also do the same. Amen.
Call to Action
One of the reasons I’m starting this devotional is to ask for others to intentionally pray for our business, AngelArts.
One of the key ways in which we share God’s redemption is through our Live Action Role Playing Club in Colorado Springs. One of the reasons why we started this group is to help teenagers who struggle with suicide. We want to give them hope and healing through a relationship with Jesus. It’s humbling sometimes to realize the responsibility we have as we fulfill our calling.
Would you pray along with us?
Dear Lord, help AngelArts and her team, especially our coach Nate and his wife Jaden, be a light to these kids. Help the LARPing club to grow so that more children can be reached. Amen.
