Worth Repeating

“It is not uncommon for dedicated Christians to be conscientious about serving God and seeking His will. However, even our prayers often reflect an egotistical perspective as we pray, ‘Lord, what is Your will for my life?’ We should be praying, ‘Lord, what is Your will?’ – period! And once we come to understand God’s will, then we can begin to get an understanding about what His will for us personally will be. God’s will for each of His children is in the context of His mission, that universal plan and purpose to be known and worshipped among every people, tribe, language, and nation. For some it will be mean to go. For others it is to be senders, mobilizers, and supporters. For all, it is to witness to those from the nations that He is bringing into our cities and communities. But no one is exempt! To say, ‘I’ll serve God where I live and ignore the need of the nations to know Jesus,’ is a deceptive scheme of Satan to divert believers from God’s mission.”

Dr. Jerry Rankin, from his book Spiritual Warfare and Missions
