20 Bible Verses About Mission
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about the mission. Every man is on a mission on earth. However, not everyone is able to accomplish their mission, that’s why there are so many destinies that were never fulfilled.
A mission can never be accomplished without a vision. The reason why many people have not been able to fulfill their purpose is that they have no clear vision of their mission on earth. And when the purpose of something is unknown, abuse is inevitable.
Christ was on a mission on earth. He came to restore man to the original state that God designed for a man. Despite all the challenges, temptations, and tribulations that he faced here on earth, none of them were able to stop him from accomplishing that mission. Because Christ had a clear vision of his mission, He understood everything that He was meant to do per time.
Similarly in our lives, we must have a clear vision of our mission on earth. If not, we will be tossed around by challenges, temptations, and tribulations. Little wonder the book of Habakkuk 2:2 Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. Until we start running by the vision, our mission might not be fulfilled.
We have curated a list of 20 Bible verses about missions. Study them to understand how to know your mission and how to accomplish them.
