The Power of Mission

Mission is a powerful force. It gives people energy, purpose, and meaning to their lives. Before Jesus ascended to heaven, He gave His disciples a world-encompassing mission, and then provided them with the authority and power to fulfill it. Earlier, He had also given them a two-part command to love God with all their heart, mind, and soul and to love others as He loved them. As today’s disciples of Jesus consider how to build their lives around His Commission and Commandment, we are blessed to have examples of how those first disciples, in the power of the Holy Spirit, carried out the instructions of Jesus.
