But one of my hang ups is that I’m an idea person and an action person, but not an influencer. It means that I have a lot of ideas, I’m willing to do the work for them, I just have trouble getting others to join me. But the question is, do these ideas and things I do, are the in line with mission? Because even if they are good things, are they being a distraction? Perhaps. Am I being driven or am I being called? I’m sure a bit of both.
Jesus had clear mission. His mission defined everything he did and didn’t do. He didn’t heal every person. He didn’t preach to every village. His mission was found at the cross and he “set his face toward Jerusalem” (Lk 9:51)
