Ephesians 2:10, Acts 1:8, Revelation 7:9-10
10 For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.’
9 After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands.
10 They cried out in a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne and to the Lamb!”
The Good News is God has made a way for and extends His welcome to all to enter His Kingdom.
Each of us who have accepted that invitation are assigned as Kingdom ambassadors to communicate that welcome to others.
The assignments for each of us have been thoughtfully and specifically prepared
Each of our individual assignments in these times extend beyond the borders of our familiar territory.
God grant that we can each think outside our borders to discover the glorious good works He has already prepared for us to walk in.
