Lead, follow or get out of the way...

This was a saying we used in the military and in the military we were all about mission. Well it's no different except the person in charge is the King of kings and Lord of lords.  The Jesus Mission by Steven K. Scott

"Christ completed 27 missions while on earth. Take up the 4 He assigned to you." While it sounds pretty easy this is truely things are easier said than done. However, what the author does is break it down so the elephant is easier to eat. Scriptures are used throughout to document that Jesus did in fact complete 27 important missions while he was alive on earth, and that he also assigned four important missions for us to complete as his disciples. And just as the completion of his tasks would have been impossible without the enablement of God, his Heavenly Father; it is impossible for us to complete our four missions unless we are enabled by Jesus Christ through the power of the person of the Holy Spirit who dwells within us as followers of Christ.

This book is not written for the light hearted person who is interested in just getting saved, no, this book is written for those who are serious about their commitment to Christ and want to fulfill the mission assigned.

I have received a complementary copy of the book for reviewing from Waterbrook Multnomah.
