Monday: Read Acts 1:1-8. The instructions were clear; don’t start the mission until God’s Holy Spirit is powering it. Once the Holy Spirit showed up, what would the super-natural consequence be? What is your witness at home, in your neighborhood, at work, and beyond?
Tuesday: Read Acts 13: 46-48. Who do you think first rejected the Word of God as Paul and Barnabas spoke it? Have you ever shared God’s Word with someone who then rejected that Word? How did that make you feel? From this passage, to whom does God desire his Word to be carried?
Wednesday: Read Colossians 1:19-20. All Christians are carriers of the Good News of Jesus. We are God’s representatives, carrying His message to all people. How does this passage summarize the message we carry? What kind of peace does Jesus bring?
Thursday: Read Romans 10:13-15. This is a powerful and popular passage in which we see how it is that people can call on the name of the Lord to be saved. They need to believe in Jesus. To believe in Jesus they need to hear about Jesus. To hear about Jesus someone needs to teach them. Finally, the person who teaches them needs to be sent. Wow! Where do you see yourself fitting in this process?
Friday: Read Revelation 21:1-8. This passage gives us a beautiful and fearful picture of the new heaven and new earth that God will ultimately create. Why is it beautiful? Why is it fearful? How can this passage encourage and motivate you to take seriously your role in God’s great mission?
Saturday: Read Psalm 96:1-3. God’s mission has always been to all people, from every nation and language. How does this passage affirm that truth? Take a moment in prayer to praise and glorify God and pray for His mission to be mightily carried out in your life and in the life of your church.
