Why do we do what we do?

Why have we given our lives to the cause of seeing unreached people hear good news?

It’s not a bad question to ask ourselves from time to time. Knowing why we do what we do is important.  We need to remind ourselves! It’s not money, it’s not success. It’s not status. It’s not even the excitement of seeing miracles or great progress that motivates us to do what we do. No, it’s not those things.

Paul summed it up well in Romans 1:5, “Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name.”-New Living Translation

Passionate prayer changes lives
We do what we do… because it is a PRIVILEGE.  We have been chosen by God as His ambassadors, His apostles- as Sent Ones.  We go everywhere and tell the unreached what God has done for them!  What an honor to be chosen for this task. Today, do you see this as a “privilege”?

We do what we do… because we have been given AUTHORITY.  As sons and daughters of the King of Kings, we go with His power and anointing to bring about change in people groups and communities.  As we find the person of peace, as we heal the sick, as we proclaim the Kingdom of God…things happen!  Lives change!  The Kingdom is manifested through us. Today, are you exercising your apostolic authority?

Lastly, we do what we do… because HE DESERVES THE GLORY and praise of all peoples and nations.  As the song says, “He is Worthy of it All.”  Our passion for His glory motivates us to continue, to press on, until we see all nations bow before His throne. Today, how strong is your passion for His glory?
