Good mission statement

And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him. Acts 28:30-31

Here’s a good mission statement: To preach the Kingdom of God, and to teach those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ….And not to teach those things which do not concern the Lord Jesus Christ.

Notice how Paul was housebound (literally) and yet the Lord drew people to him to hear the message. God is never restricted by our restrictions.

    When we preach the Kingdom of God we are preaching the rule and reign of the King, the Lord Jesus Christ. If people will bow their knees to Him now they will enjoy living and reigning with Him in His Kingdom forever: it’s always in the present and in the future: it’s a Kingdom which begins NOW and extends forever. If we will desire His rule and reign over us now, by faith, by the Spirit, then we will sit with Him in His physical Kingdom forever, face to face with the King of Kings.

    The Kingdom concerns the King. Kingdom people are concerned with the King: He is their life and message. For them, Jesus comes to rule every part of their life and being.

    For the kingdom of God is not food and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17
