Think for Yourself

And thus I aspired to preach the gospel, not where Christ was already named, so that I would not build on another man’s foundation. Romans 15:20

Here’s Paul’s mission statement. It wasn’t formulated after hours of strategic planning, but came from aspirations spawned by a tap on the shoulder by Christ himself. Here’s the what, where and why of his ministry.

Don’t adopt someone else’s mission statement as yours unless you really believe in it. The Spirit has a particular calling for each of us during our brief stint on earth, and it’s not likely going to emanate from a task force, boardroom or consultant.
