Mark 16:15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation."
When you meet a young person who is about to start their journey in college, what is the first question you want to ask them?
For me I ask, "What do you want to do with your life?"
Don't you cringe when they respond, "I don't know what I am going to do."
My next thought is, why are you wasting everyone's time and money going to college if you are unsure? But, I know that by the end of their college years they will probably have direction.
Sometimes we can get confused even after college and wonder what our purpose in life is.
I love how God makes it CRYSTAL CLEAR what our purpose is: Mark 16:15, to tell the world about Jesus and what He has done.
How does this relate to everyday life?
We should be prepared at all times to share the good news about Jesus with others - yes even strangers.
We are supposed to be the light of the world. Let's not hide our little light under a bush but instead lets be a light in the darkness.
I want to challenge you this week to wake up each morning and pray. Ask the Lord to give you opportunities to be a light in a dark world.
