What Do You Have?

Common in every Christ-centered mission.

Staggering needs. Crumbs for resources.

Most strategists approach it backwards. “What is the gap? How do we close it?”

Not the Master.

“What do you have? Let go of all of it, to Me.”

In that moment we discover our level of trust, or absence of it.

If we keep it and guard it, He cannot bless it.

If we surrender it, He can work with it.

First, He gives thanks & blesses it.

Next, He breaks it.

Then, He multiplies it to feed  –  to the full  –  thousands of people in need.

The ‘take home boxes’ were abundantly greater than the resources they started with.

God-sized Call,  God-sized needs.

Meager starting provisions.

Protect it, and it remains “all you have.”

Release it, and watch Him work.

To Bless….

And Break….

And Multiply.

He didn’t  –  and still doesn’t  –  ask what we don’t have.

He continues to ask us what we DO have, and challenges us to give it  –  all of it  –  into His hands.

What do you have?

Give it.

All.

To reach them, for Him.

Sent By Him

On mission.

Sent by the One Who understands better than anyone in all eternity how to go to an unfamiliar place, with unreceptive people, to accomplish the miraculous.

The Master’s words in Mark 6 are brief, clear, eternally successful.

Don’t travel alone.

Don’t pack a bag.

Don’t fret over those who refuse to listen.

Don’t stop when someone’s offended, simply move on.

Proclaim the Gospel.

Displace evil.

Heal the sick, broken, wounded wherever you go.

Give Him all the glory.

His Name. His Spirit. His power and authority.

All for His glory.

Your next move?

Find a missions partner, or team.

Trust His provision.

Share the Gospel, and the Name of Jesus, boldly and clearly.

Celebrate those who listen, and respond.  Move on from those who don’t.

Never bow to the enemy. Speak the Greater Name over every situation.

Give all the glory to the One Who sent you.

Repeat until the One Who sent you, calls you to His side.

Go, therefore.

To them, for Him.
