Our Mission In Life

Written by
“A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.” Proverbs 15:5

Our Heavenly Father created us as human beings to fulfill a unique mission during our time living on planet Earth between birth and death. He is our Father and His Son Jesus Christ is our King and Brother. The obvious and clear objective as we pursue our mission is to learn how to be obedient sons and daughters to this Father who gave us life.

Never mind that life is difficult sometimes. Did He say it would be easy? Many people struggle during childhood, and some people struggle as adults. But our Heavenly Father gives us help and encourages us along the way. "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Philippians 4:6 (NASB)

His choice to create us establishes that our human existence has an intimate relationship with Him. People either choose to acknowledge this relationship or reject it. As His sons and daughters, we rely on Him as our primary resource to learn how to carry out the mission that He gave us. To do that, we must study, learn, and practice obedience. “My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding: That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.” Read Proverbs 5:1-2.

The word “mission” indicates that we have a calling and a vocation. This all-knowing Creator has called us with a job to do for Him, and He equips each one of us with a unique set of talents to apply to this mission. Our number one priority and duty is to seek Him with all our heart and soul and mind, to stand in His presence daily, and to love other people and help them. Read Matthew 22:36-39, Romans 12:10, and Philippians 2:3.

To find the areas of relevance for your mission, use the special talents that your Creator gave you. Take some time to identify your talents. Then determine areas where you can best apply your talents to help others and improve the quality of both their life and yours, all the time remembering to let your Heavenly Father lead you to use those talents where He needs His work to be done. Read Isaiah 41:10, “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Your mission is not solely yours. It is your Heavenly Father who gave you the breath to live, and who works in you to accomplish His purpose. It is crucial to allow His word to guide you. Read Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” And Psalm 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

In our mission, we constantly learn and refine our thoughts. As adults, we must often times unlearn wrong ideas that we picked up along the way, for example as taught by our culture, families, friends, or religion. When we accept our mission, we must open our minds to let go of our old, erroneous ways and learn new information. To this end, our Creator gives us of His own Spirit to guide us to all truth. Read John 16:13 and 14:26.

A key point to successfully achieve your mission is to properly care for your body and rejuvenate your mind. Read Romans 12:1-2, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Along this mission, we must show respect toward Him. It is imperative to respect our Creator as our Source of Life. We must respect His Son Jesus Christ who gave his life to redeem ours, because they loved us and are planning a future together with us. Read John 14:1-6. He also instructs us to respect all other living beings and life forms, which include people, animals, plants, the earth, and so on. As the Bible teaches in 1 Peter 2:17, “Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king. (NASB)” Also read Proverbs 29:7, “The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.” And Proverbs 12:10, “A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”

By giving you a mission, our Heavenly Father also furthers His own mission, because He chose His Son Jesus Christ to restore our friendship and harmony with Him as our Father, and to live for both Him and His Son Jesus Christ our King. Read 2 Corinthians 5:14-21. "For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. …Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Make your mission and journey an excellent one. Remember to listen to His word and take advice, and be warned if you disregard it. “Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.” Read Proverbs 13:18.

Whether you choose to accept your God-given mission will determine your fate. In the end, make sure that you have done all to continue to stand tall in His presence. Some of the people that He created will praise Him. Read Psalm 102:15-22, “So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory. When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory. He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer. This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord. For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death; To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem; When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.”
