So we’ve seen that the “Why” of our 2015 plan – of our life-plan – is because the King is returning and he plans to reward us all as or actions deserve. The “WHAT” of our plan is the Great Commission to go make disciples of all nations, and the “HOW” of our plan is to “LOVE” each other and the world using God’s resources to create an eternal family — a family that calls us all into God’s love. These points are not simply optional, spiritual-development goals, this IS the life of a believer as God has defined it. How will these three corners of God’s life framework be the frame for your 2015?
The best way to start is to include a bit of each of these points in your schedule and plan for 2015. Think about the challenges I made each week. (1) Be able to identify the things you are doing that count beyond this age – that gain eternal reward. Write them down and be sure they get priority. (2) Choose one mission/ministry where you will serve and one where you will invite others to join you? (3) Invite someone you don’t know well to share a meal and to create an eternal friendship together.
Take some time to intentionally plan how these three strategies will be included in your life in 2015. Then, on a monthly basis, do a self-check to see if you are on track at working the plan. Jesus Christ is your model. Turn to him often in your pursuit. And The Holy Spirit is given to you to assure that you have the power and wisdom to succeed at these Kingdom strategies. God’s blessing on your 2015 plan!! It will be amazing and the end of the year to look back and see the progress for God’s loving reign.
