#3

this week, i’ve been doing a lot of thinking…

i’ve just been allowing laziness to get the best of me, though. i could’ve been much more productive with my studies, letting opportunity after opportunity to get ahead in my research and my assignments slip from my fingers. i’ve been letting the feeling of tiredness dominate my decisions, and pleasure dictate what i’ll allow myself to do…

this may seem natural to some folks, but it’s mission critical time just now…

just now, it’s time to increase my efforts in research. january is quickly approaching, qualifying exams in hand, and i must be prepared… it’s time to increase my focus in study. the semester is approaching an end, and the typical final examinations must be completed… i should make sure that my gifts and things are ready as the holidays are near, and it is exciting to look forward to meeting with my family and friends…

but it’s mission critical time now… and that mission is to prepare my mind and heart for evangelism and ministry…

let me revisit what i’ve already said, because i do view my academic work as ministry, and i am planning some very special things in that regard; however, it is time for me to leave my comfort zone even further behind… as i’ve considered how much i’ve ignored what obedience to God really entails, i’ve become more and more assured of my responsibility for evangelism and sharing my faith, and for being more involved in my church… to speak up and seek out the ministries that i want to be involved in or that occupy a place in my heart…

so, it’s mission critical time now…

it’s time to make evangelism a part of my lifestyle.

that’s why we’re getting a group of people together to go out in pairs and do some evangelism on CMU. i’ve been talking with rev. prentice at mt. ararat about an evangelism/outreach ministry and a discipleship arm in the new members’ ministry. why i asked about whether or not there’s a missions emphasis at mt. ararat, or asking what we do for the homeless…

it’s mission critical time now, and i need your company…

if you’re reading this right now, please pray for me as these things are things which intimidate me deeply. quite honestly, i care too much about what people think of me to do this stuff of my own strength or motivation. i don’t know which opportunities to pursue, or how there’s going to be time for everything. so just lift me up in prayer…

it’s mission critical time.
