Day 4.2...

Tonight was awesome. Pastor spoke about the following...
Does everyone serve in missions?

What is your primary mission as a follower of Christ Jesus? Of course you might say to serve abroad in a foreign country, a classic missionary. Or you may think of a worship leader playing an instrument or sing praises.

Well the camp pastor tonight really set forth a clear understanding of our primary sole purpose. He taught on the scripture found in 2 Corinthians 3:17 - 4:6. Establishing what is true liberty or freedom is, verse 3:17 "…where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." As believers we have been truly set free, we have been liberated from the bondage of sin.

As a mirror shows the reflection of the person, so shall our hearts, our lives, our thoughts, and our actions. The question we should ask ourselves does our live reflect the image of God. Verse 3:18, "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit."
Would you agree? Can we say I reflect His glory? To reflect His glory, that is our primary mission for all believers.

Of course, we are human but our hearts transformed and we will look away from the Lord and stumble. God is faithful, He will be there. So, Christians don't lose hope. At chapter 4, "Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy we do not lose heart."

And we shouldn't live doubled, hold in fleshly desires, hiding another side of ourselves to the world, the darkest.  But instead living boldly, speaking truth by being an example to others that without doubt testify to God's truths before man's conscience and God, verse 4:2.

Please continue to read through 4:6 and comment below if you agree.

Thank you God for this message through Bro. Keahbone.
