Steadfast Toward the Mission

Brought out in reading 2 Corinthians 5:20 through 6:10 are Paul’s actions which commend him being an ambassador of God. He paid a tremendous price for his ministry including persecution, hardship, and rejection yet remained steadfast toward the mission.

It took qualities like endurance, patience and kindness to overcome these difficulties but there was comfort in knowing that God was with him for the purpose of changing the world for the better. God will also give us insight into how to play our part in this adventurous mission for His glory.

Along the way, we may also face trials. The thing about life is the stress of being able to balance everything we would like to do and still fulfilling the mission God has for us. Therefore, there is a great need to study our priorities; go after first what is most important and then like the domino effect, our items on the task list start to fall one after another until the mission is accomplished.

This day with You Lord, we are inspired by the purpose for which Paul blazed a path for all of us to follow. This new way to righteousness makes it easier for all to receive Your power. Help us to use this power to handle trials that may come our way. Help us stand up to the forces against us in order to be a transformer rather than conformer. To never compromise our standards regardless of the trials that may come our way. For it is in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
