Ever’day I’m Hustlin’ | Monday – Part 1

Pastor Chris kicks off our new series, Ever’day I’m Hustlin’ with part 1, Monday. It is so easy to come to church, worship God, and then leave Him there and walk out the doors. But would it look like if we took God with us to our places of work, our Monday thru Saturday routines? Jesus at the Last Supper closes with prayer for Himself, His Disciples and for all Believers. He prays the words, “In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world.” What is God’s mission? Jesus was the fulfillment of the promise or covenant of God with all humankind. And time and time again He pointed everyone that He came into contact with toward God, their Heavenly Father, our Heavenly Father. Our mission is exactly the same as Jesus. As God’s people, we have the privilege, honor and responsibility to proclaim this reality in word and deed. God has a mission, and the church is a missional community partnering with God however and whenever we are able in the life-giving process of seeing the world renewed in Jesus Christ. But the key to living missionally is worship. Worship is our response, both personal and corporate, to God for who God is and what he has done, expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live. The starting point of worship is coming to grips with the reality that our very life and breathe is a gift from God. We offer our lives back to God in full recognition that God is our source of life. We have no life and we have no breath, apart from what God gives to us. Offering our lives back to God, saying that I no longer live with a mission that is for my own gain, but living with a mission that everything I do, big or small, is going to point people to Christ. We are plan A for the mission of God, and there is no plan B. We are it! Will we engage in the mission that God has given us?
