Your mission, should you choose to accept it…


With those words, the old “Mission Impossible” TV show launched the hero into an adventure.  Presumably he could have NOT accepted the mission.  But then there would have been no action, no TV show, and no injustice set right.  Today, you have a mission, should you choose to accept it…

It’s the mission of Jesus.  He told a story in which some people accepted the mission, and others did not.  He told of people in need, people struggling with brokenness, poverty, hunger, hopelessness, and more.  And he looked at those who accepted the mission to do something about it, and said, “Whatever you did for them, you did for me!”  (read the full story in Matthew 25:31-46)

Ignite Weekend 2012 is about this mission.  It’s about accepting the mission of Jesus to do something about the brokenness, the poverty, the hunger, the sickness, the loneliness, and the despair in this world.  Together we will ignite the HOPE of Christ in a concentrated way.

Check out the project list in your program this Sunday.  Or hop online and choose from the growing number of “mission” projects.  Serve.  Lead.  Innovate.  Ignite HOPE!

My prayer is that you’ll accept the mission of Jesus.  There will be adventure.  There will be action.  (Not sure about a TV show!)  There will be pushing back against the darkness of this world.  And there will be stories of God showing up and working through us.

Should you choose to accept it…
