Our MISSION STATEMENT in adding persons to 270 days bible study program!
In many schools, teachers ask a question to students about their ambition or goal in life. Many say, Doctor, Engineer, Teacher, Soldier, Scientist, Businessman…
Parents and teachers help children, even in an young age to develop an ambition and walk towards that. To a great extent the ambition of a student will tell us about their interest, background, level of motivation..
In sports, a good coach will help the athletes to set high goals and motivate them to achieve it. A person declaring a high ambition, gets motivation to work towards that goal. An athlete in a running competition, keep the finishing point in mind, and run not only to finish the running, but to reach there before others, at the shortest time possible.
Companies or business people set targets– long term and short term.
If setting a goal in our secular studies/ sports/ business/individual life/family life is essential, how much more it is in setting a goal in our spiritual life and ministry? When it comes to adding more people to our Bible reading programme, do we have a goal or target about the number of people?
St. Luke 4: 18,19: Jesus’ Mission: ” The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind , to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”
Acts 20:24, St. Paul’s mission statement written: ” But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”
Can we prayerfully set a personal target of adding 1000 /500/ 250/ 100/ 50.. people to this programme? Fix it, declare it by writing that in the group and work towards achieving that goal.
In a school when students declare their good ambitions, it motivates even others to set goals and work towards it. Similarly in our Bible reading programme, when each person declare their personal target in the group, that motivates others also to set goals and work towards it. We can add anybody from anywhere in the world with their consent. 780 crores of people are around us whom we can invite .
Let us do it for the Lord. Let us declare it in the group and work towards it prayerfully and strategically.
Our love towards the Lord and persons around us matters in this mission.
