Well, here we are, half way through the year 2015. Where is time going? It seems to slip away so quickly, so stealthily. Without notice a month has gone by, and then two...
And it's in that frame of mind that I sense God jarring me, moving me in a deeper place than where I've accustomed myself to living. Perhaps as you read this post, you will sense the depth yourself in my words. But it's Godly and it's needed.
A word keeps coming to my mind in my times of prayer and meditation as of late...the word is urgency.
For this. For His Kingdom. For His people.
In case you haven't noticed, our world is screaming it too. Urgency.
This call of missions is not just live in another country, help people, make a difference in the world.... It's God's love as a Father who yearns for His children to be home and free. It's the might of an all-powerful Creator who is coming back for His church. It's the hope of the Son, awaiting His perfect and spotless bride. It's life and death. It's eternity. It's the Spiritual being realized in the natural. It's God reminding us of who He is and His sovereignty and place in the world and in our lives. And it's oh-so urgent.
My prayer is that we would be at attention to the role God is calling each of us to. That we would not be sleepy believers who lose track of the hours as they slip by, but that we would each be listening with intent for the words of direction He would give us. My prayer is that I would not grow weary, but trust Him for the harvest. And that the people He is calling to partner in this journey, in every capacity, would have hearts and minds at ready to seize the opportunity to be a part.
"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world
as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."
