ON THE GROUND
Sooner or later, every skydiver into the Kingdom realizes that God has ordained them to serve in His Mission. This is what the apostle says about the Mission.
The disciple of Jesus commits to becoming a peacemaker. Reconciliation is the coming together of two parties that were separated by offence. The fact that God has done that for us in Christ means He has changed his view from seeing us as sinners to saints. Jesus landed on the ground to make peace between God and man. We have landed to share in Christ’s mission of bringing peace.
Are you on mission to see people being restored to relationship with God or do you have the past dragging you along to judge, find fault and lower view of humanity? The past brought you to this point in time, but the past can also be a drag and a heavy, dangerous weight.
If God can put our sins on Christ and give us His righteousness, why do we want to hang on to a less than godly view? Without Christ, we are left with all of our unrighteousness and there is no way home to the Father.
Let’s unstrap the worldly view and put on Jesus’ outlook. This includes how you previously viewed yourself through the lens of the world. To know Jesus is to the beginning of knowing yourself. How else can we begin to understand the eyes of the Creator?
